Econ emergency... please help!

<p>So, basically I know nothing about econ and have both the macro and micro tests tomorrow. I didn't take the class, as I was going to self-study. Hah, didn't exactly pan out. I was so worried about my other tests that I ignored econ 110%. I've read three chapters of 5 Steps to a 5. That's it. Three chapters. </p>

<p>So what should I do? I want to get a 5 on macro, but I don't really care about micro. I know my chances of getting a 5 are super low, since I know nothing, but I think that if I stay up all night studying and am highly motivated I might be able to pull it off (hopingggg).</p>

<p>So long story short: what should I study? Should I just explore all night? Or should I try and read through all of 5 Steps? Please help me!</p>

<p>Thanks in advance!</p>

<p>And yes, I know I'm screwed. No need to point that out.</p>

<p>i'm laughing at you so hard right now i just can't believe you</p>

<p>gg my good sir</p>

<p>Yeah, well, life's a ***** :P</p>

<p>Btw, gg= Gaga? Gucci? Good God?</p>

<p>Bahhh, someone help me! I am undoubtedly the stupidest person on this forum...
"Oh, ZuVieleFragen, econ is a breeze"
"Oh, ZuVieleFragen you'll be fine!"
"Oh, ZuVieleFragen, no worries!"</p>

<p>BahHUMBUG! I'm so screwed. So, so, so very screwed!</p>

<p>dude dw I'm in the same boat as you. </p>

<p>I looked at micro a few times over and know half of macro, so maybe not as bad as you. But I haven't looked at the material (since today) in over 3 weeks, because of other exams.</p>

<p>Dw we still have >8 hours until the test starts. I'm pretty sure we can read princeton 4 times or 525 twice lol.</p>

<p>let's motivate eachother to stay up? ay?</p>

<p>Well I'm certainly glad I'm not the only one in this sinking boat... haha. Do you really think PR is feasible in 8 hours (or 525 for that matter)? I have both, but I'm definitely thinking it will take me more than 8 hours just to get through 525...</p>

<p>This sucks! Last year I learned all of World History in one night from reading chapter outlines and BSed my way to a 5. Econ actually requires you to think!</p>

<p>Yes, mutual motivation is good! Excellent thinking, ElMastermind!</p>

<p>yeh I have like 20minutes of 525 left for micro, and I may just go through princetons twice macro and then reffonomics for support (which is pretty awesome btw).</p>

<p>I thought I knew most of the micro stuff, but reffonomics really enforced it.</p>

<p>If you really didn't study at all maybe you should just look at reffonomics? I tried to go ahead without reading, but it was a little odd.</p>

<p>Okay, with the help of my handy dandy calculator, which curse the CB I don't get to use tomorrow, I will need to read either one page of PR ever 4 minutes in order to finish by the morning, or one page of 525 every 3.3 minutes. </p>

<p>So, I can conclusively say that I must pick between the two. If I go PR, and go through it as fast as possible, I can probably review some concepts on Reffonomics, but I fear my retention level will be deplorable. Perhaps I will continue with 525 and only read it through once. </p>

<p>What do you think, ElMastermind?</p>

<p>Why not take practise tests? I was going to read and take notes from my textbook but that just took too much time.This was for AP Chem though. So I abandoned that and just took FRQs from CB. I learnt stuff from doing that.</p>

<p>But this is it may be different :P</p>

<p>read PR all through the night without any breaks</p>

<p>hmm i have no idea. Try to speed read? Frankly, I'm still procrastonating by being here hahaha.</p>

<p>Well when I looked at princeton it didn't really compare to 525, so maybe just go for 525 in one shot.</p>

<p>@orangefroot: Well I started to take a practice exam, and failed miserably, so I decided it was worthless until I got a foundation. </p>

<p>And ElMastermind, I think I'm just going to screw both prep books and just go through the Reffonomics site as fast as possible. Hopefully it will be as good of a review... And you're so right, I've been procrastinating here all night...</p>

<p>@Theeboy3: do you speak from experience?</p>

<p>no, but that's what I would do</p>

<p>PR will teach you everything you need to know and you'll just have to apply it tomorrow</p>

<p>Warning to all: never start watching Audrey Hepburn movies before studying... you will not stop! I've seen Breakfast at Tiffany's, Two for the Road, and Paris When it Sizzles within the last 5 hours... FML</p>

<p>@Theeboy3: okay, I'll try that with either 525 or PR I guess.</p>

<p>5 steps to a 5 >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> PR</p>

<p>hey guys i feel your pain. . .
this past sunday i basically i learned bio in one day. i am technically enrolled in the class, but i goofed around the entire year :P </p>

<p>my teacher gave us two electronic versions of these really really helpful study guides. Macro is like 100 pgs and micro is like 80 pgs. </p>

<p>PM me if you want them, just to let you know I will be sleeping in the next 45 mins so PM me quick! </p>

<p>good luck with all your ap exams guys!</p>

<p>thanks brown I really appreciate it!</p>

<p>I think I'm just gonna KO 525, cement with ref, and then look at some 2-3 page study sheets online.</p>

<p>But thanks again</p>
