I Study, Therefore My Head Hurts

Preparing for tonight's Philosophy mid-term on Descartes' Meditations on First Philosophy and Leibniz's Monadology has felt very much like the proverbial cramming of 10 lbs. of &%@# into the 5 lb. bag.  Where's the mirror?  I know my eyes have glazed over and I fear I may be bleeding from my ears. Ugh!  WWIT (What Was I Thinking)?  It seemed like a good idea at the time.  Prayers for just enough recall and coherence and some semblance of comprehension and understanding are most definitely welcome.

Addendum:  Thank you, the prayers helped.  I survived and my head didn't explode.  We had a list of eight questions for each philosopher.  The professor required we address one specific question for Leibniz and then allowed us to pick the others; it was our choice for all four questions on Descartes.  It is possible that accurate or comprehensive answers are lacking, however I believe there is some essence (maybe only a very faint hint of it) I understood the material.  When I turned in my work, I admitted "I think you got theological-type responses from me more so than philosophical".  He said, "Well, that sounds like that's what you'll need!"  I'm keeping my fingers crossed.
