Review Sessions

Hi all,
Here is the deal. I use to have study sessions last year and this year I am undecided. The study sessions were from 7:30-7:55 and I would go over items that were going to be on the test and focus the information so that students could have a much better idea about what was on the test. I use to like to give students an advantage if they came in on their free time in the morning because it showed me their grade meant a lot to them. Now most of you are in early bird and are getting out of class early so it is different in my eyes and hence a main reason for me not to do the reviews. The other major issue is that not all the early bird teachers will let the students out of their class to come to my class review and so some of you will feel left out. Please comment on these issues if you want to help me decide. Please feel free to see last years students posts on this issue when I had a similar situation.
