Those topics they spend more time on teaching, explaining, making emphasis or repeating things over and over again should get your attention. Exam questions may spring from some of them, because most lecturers do ask questions from the topics they enjoy teaching.
Lecturers drop hints
Some lectures while teaching drop hints to the students. Please don’t ignore those hints. For example a lecture might say “if I should ask…, I expect…” or “this is the kind of question I like asking in exams”. Do not take such comments for granted, because surprisingly the same question may be among your exam questions, perhaps in a modified form.
