How to study for APUSH midterms when you've forgotten everything.

The test will be 2/3 Multiple Choice and an essay chosen from ~20 possible prompts that I already know and have taken some notes on.

It's on the first 19 chapters of the book. I have a packet of key terms, notes, and...the book. I'm a bit overwhelmed by the scope of it all. My long term memory is pretty bad so I can't say I remember a lot of this stuff at this point.

If anyone has some guidelines on how to study? The test is next week. I don't even know if I'd have enough time to make an outline for each possible essay prompt and make a study guide of the key terms but that's what I'm thinking of doing. Any other ideas/approaches? Some way to target the most important stuff in a short amount of time?

    For APUSH midterms, I usually just read the AMSCO prep books pretty thoroughly which should cover most of the facts without the excessive details. Maybe course-notes can also help you too
