I think doing the practice problems are the most helpful since you're practicing how to solve questions that might essentially be asking the same question but just with a completely different wording. Also, I would think that really taking time to understand the concepts rather than memorizing them would be more efficient, because in the end, you're being tested on applying those concepts to questions you've never seen. But these are just my speculations since I'm pretty much in the same boat as you are
I'm not sure exactly what the best way to study is, but I've also just been doing the practice problems. I'm making sure that I know how to do each different type of problem. I might also use the audio-visual focus-topics to review material covered in class.
I think doing all of the homework problems as well as the audio-visual modules is the way to go, because the syllabus said that homework would sometimes be used for tests. Furthermore, the questions in the assessments for the modules were developed by Dr. Lavelle so they may give some sense of what the question will be like. *The only caveat with the modules is they are multiple choice and the tests aren't.
The way I have been looking at it is first reviewing the problems that we did in our discussions. Those seem to have many important features. Next I am going to watch the audio videos and take notes. The pre and post assessments i am going to use to gauge my understanding of the concepts and then add on with additional homework problems in the needed areas. With that said i may still do all of the homework problems just in case.
So far, I have just been repeating problems from the textbook in order to see what areas I'm weak in. I personally didn't like the audio visual modules because the answers were multiple choice, which isn't what we're going to have on the test. I will also do more problems from the book that aren't assigned and I might look up some practice problems online.
