I agree with the cramming suggestions, at least for this particular test.

In similar situations in the past (eg preparing for interviews), I've found it valuable to simulate test conditions: actually try to write a whole solution out on paper, and only when done, go type it in, see if it works, and correct the errors. You'll start memorizing things in no time if you make not remembering them actually annoy you.
