24 days until my first exam and the beginning of hell week

I've got four exams between Monday December 6 and Saturday December 11 and then I have a nice 4 day lay off until Evidence on December 15. My laptop is at the Best Buy service center in Denver suffering from a bad connection between the AC adapter input and the battery. The dork at Best Buy told me I'd have it back by November 19. He'd better be right or so help me and my poor cramped left hand (from writing).

Handicapping my exams

Level of confidence right now (Scale = 1 - 10 (10 being best(doy).) Chance of doing well compared to the curve (1 to 5 +'s)

Constitutional Law (Monday Dec. 6, 9 a.m.) - 7+++ - I'm pretty confident in this class but the material is pretty easy so there must be a good number of my classmates who feel the same.

Criminal Procedure (Wed. Dec. 8, 9 a.m.) - 4++++ - I haven't studied this much outside of class and it's bitch material but easily absorbed.

Unfair Competition (Thurs. Dec. 9, 9 a.m.) - 9+++++ - Trademark and copyright stuff is right in my comfort zone. I try hard to not be a gunner in this class but it's tough when no one else will volunteer.

Administrative Law (Sat. Dec. 11, 9 a.m.) - 5++ - This is going to be tough. I should have had Con Law down before taking this, but the school doesn't limit registration to 3L's only. The material is beginning to coalesce for me, but I hope it's not too late. Good thing the library has the Nutshell book for this, written by the author of the casebook.

Evidence (Wed. Dec. 15, 9 a.m.) - 5++++ - While I haven't done much outside of class, I have nearly 4 full days to prepare.
