Preparing for an interview or exam


Hi guys,

If I have 1 or at most 2 days to an interview or exam, what is the best strategy to prepare for the same? I mean, how do I prepare to get optimum results?
Techniques to employ:
-repetition after every 25 minutes or something?
-method of loci or story?
-putting topics of the exam on a spreadsheet?
-not go deep on the topics but memorize just enough to get by?

Thanks in advance
