This is excellent advice whether preparing for a presentation or for an
exam. IMHO, preparing thoroughly, then letting it rest, allows you to
come back to it fresh and rested. Ideas have time to gel in the mind and
you get past the tensions that arise from cramming at the last minute.
It's a bit like studying a problem before going to sleep and waking up
with the answer.
