With K&B book I would suggest printing "Two-minutes drill" sections. That is good base for remembering tricks you might encounter during exam and mock up tests. AND on top of that updating those drills with short explanation, notes and short examples to remember API ect. Whole K&B book is too extensive for this purpose. You cannot go trough whole process of understaing the problem you forgot, particularly if it runs through quite a few pages. It takes too much time. Good, to the point notes are crucial. Thats what I should do much earlier rather then going through K&B book again. My learning would be much more effective.
