I've read that it is true that pulling an all-nighter right before an exam is bad. Has something to do with how sleep actually helps you to retain the memory of the stuff you just crammed. It would be better to cram but then still manage to get at least five or six hours of sleep before taking the exam.

Now, having said that, the story is completely different when you have a paper to write like I do... Have a research paper due by midnight tomorrow night and I haven't written a single word. Guess I'm going to have a LONG night ahead of me...
