I know how you feel I have the exam tomorrow too! Whenever I try to learn things I usually pace my room and repeat each sentence or word 5 or more times then I move on to the next bit and follow the same pattern. After I've repeated 3 or 4 quotes I will go back to the first one and say them all and see if I remember it. Its a bit of a weird method though it might work. If your really stressing look at websites like shoomp or spark notes and pick out key quotes, then just write them out to get them in your head or record yourself saying them. Hope this helps and if your really stressed take a break to clear your head

don't bother with long quotes, and always reference steinbeck in every paragraph. also, use P L E A...Point Language Evidence Analysis
