I feel like I studied for the tests, midterm, and final the same way though. Even if they are structured a little differently, they're basically all word problems so doing the book problems and going over notes is still the best way to study.
The midterms/final are similar in the sense that the questions are sandwiched between an equation sheet and a periodic table. However, the midterms are harder overall as the questions require you master the subject or you will get the question wrong, as well as the follow up questions regarding the question. Essentially, not knowing how to do just 1 topic will heavily affect your grade. No pressure.
i find that the tests are very straightforward and math based questions, but the midterm questions are very implicit and challenging (in my opinion). you really need to know and understand the concepts to be able to solve the questions on the midterms and the final.
From my experience with him in 14A, the tests are much more straightforwards while the midterm/final are much longer and have more application type problems. Also, it includes more conceptual questions. They are much more difficult, in my opinion.
Midterm and final tend to have more application based problems, usually with some biological connection. It's good to have a solid understanding of all the concepts learned in class because you'll need to know which one to apply once you get to the exam, where you will most likely encounter a complex question that you haven't see before.
