What can you do to Review for the PHYS-2070 Final Exam?

I have arranged my schedule to take the Final Exam:

Apr. 27 Tue - FINAL EXAM 2:45-4:45pm (2 hours) [PHYS-2070(15) 2pm]

Apr. 29 Thu - FINAL EXAM 12:30-2:30pm (2 hours) [PHYS-2070(14) Noon]

I have made other arrangements with Dr. Phil to take the Final Exam.
