AP Euro Review Page
The best thing you can do to help yourself is to get organized.  Notes, key terms, test essays, nation charts, etc. all in one binder.  Re-organize information from units you found confusing.  Eliminate information that now seems extraneous.  Spend time each day with the information.  The more you cram the less you'll remember in the long run.
