Hilary couldn't believe how quickly finals had snuck up on them. It seemed like they should still be weeks away, instead of just about a week. She mentally kicked herself for not thinking to start studying sooner.

She laid all of her notes and books out on the table around her. Where should she start? There was so much information that she would need to know.

She decided to start with Transfiguration. That was the subject she was having the most trouble with, so she could probably use the extra time to get it all down. She pulled her notes toward her and started reading.
