See the Final Exam Study Guide to prepare for the test.
They've know about this since September. When they go to High School next year they will begin taking final exams, about 90 class hours worth of material in one test. This is a kinda/sorta trial run for them. It covers info and skills learned through the whole year, but, only about 20 hours worth of information. However, they must study!!
