Scroll down to the Preparing for Tests and Taking Tests sections. Lots of good ideas in there.
Learn to make and use flash cards -- for everything -- grammar, vocab, etc.!!
Since it is tomorrow, don't try to cram! Get a good night's sleep, have a good breakfast and, if you ask for specific review information, I can provide that for you.
Depending upon the textbook, go through the grammar points. Hopefully, you have an idea of what the exam will be like? Is it oral, written, a combination of both, what exactly have you done during class to predict the "format" of the exam? I always gave my students a study sheet so they at least knew the direction to take and for the final exam, we did sample exercises so they knew what kind of items they would see on the exam itself.
Writeacher gave you an excellent site and I have a great deal of materials on exams, if you let me know what you still need.

Often "cut and paste" will not work, but I'll try to print the "INDEX" of the booklet I had for my students on Exams, How to Study, etc.
