How do you prepare for PhD Chemistry Diagnostic Exams (ACS Exams) without the actual study guide for the corresponding ACS Exam? I obtained the study guide for general, organic, and physical, but how do you prepare for the biochemistry, inorganic and analytical chemistry exams if these study guides aren't made available yet?

Should I review my class notes and textbooks?

Just read over your class notes and textbooks in the few weeks before the exams start. The ACS diagnostic exams really aren't that big of a deal.
