I studied for a couple of hours yesterday, and now I'm studying all day today. Does anyone have any tips for me? I was thinking about really focusing on Laplace transformations, and possibly attempting to use it for as many problems as I can - I enjoy that technique. Any suggestions on which problems I should skip?

I guess my biggest question is: How do I know which problem solving technique to use on a given problem? If it is a first ODE it should be cake, but what about second ODEs?

Thanks for the help guys!
