How do I shake off the rust and review four years of German language and grammar in a short time period?

Hi everyone. In two weeks I will be taking a German placement test at my university, and hopefully do well enough that I can skip the basic German 101-104 classes and enter into more advance German courses. I took four years of German in high school, but I never took the AP or SAT II tests.
However, it's been about 6 months since I've done any German review and I'm sort of at a loss for how to prepare for the placement test. I was very good at German in high school, but admittedly, I am very much out of practice.
I picked up a beginner "Wie Bitte?" textbook and workbook from a used bookstore yesterday, and I'm going to work through it over my winter break. I was wondering though if you all had any other tips or ideas on how I can accelerate my review. I doubt I'll be able to learn any new content, but do you have any specific ideas to help me remember all the old rules and vocabulary I once knew?
