I feel the same way. Personally, I like going back through the old sapling homework because they give detailed solutions and how to solve them. I also think the textbook problems are a great way to practice and make sure you understand the concepts.
Sapling HW, all the textbook problems in the outlines, and UA worksheets are all great practice as many times, homework problems will be on exams! Also going over notes and such to refresh concepts is helpful. Hope this helps!
I am going to go through Sapling, textbook problems, and UA worksheets. I personally wouldn't go through too much in one day, spread it out! I like to dedicate a few days to do the textbook problems, the sapling problems, and worksheets. My main focus is typically the textbook since it provides a wide variety of problems.
I personally find the UA sessions most helpful because they give us problems similar to those on their past tests. I also go through the textbook problems and sapling homework. For me, practicing a bunch of problems is most beneficial.

For conceptual things, I find that re-writing my notes is a good way to revisit topics and get a better understanding of them. Similar to this, I like writing out explanations of concepts after reviewing. So as a 'prompt' I might tell myself to explain hybridization, and then write out my explanation. Even if it seems like a lot of work, it really helps me get a solid understanding of concepts and think of questions I might not have had before. Hope this helps!
I find the textbook problems super helpful, but before I start a section I like to look through the textbook and my notes and write down some of the key concepts for that topic. Once I'm done, I check my answers and figure out what topics I struggle with and need to focus on the most.
I tend to review my notes I wrote again and then watch Organic Chemistry Tutor videos on topics I need more insight on. For the final exam, I'm focusing on understanding the new material first. Then, I'm going through my notes from previous units. After reviewing all my notes, I also redo the Textbook outline problems(especially the more difficult/longer ones). The UA worksheets also help since they use some past exam questions!
I am going to redo the textbook problems since he pulls his questions from there. I am also going to read through the sapling questions and answers. I also have heard that the UAs give out practice exams and they might be giving out practice final exams.
