A helpful tip - August 24th 2011, 02:31 AM

I believe this is a helpful tip to go far in your classes and do well.

If you are in college and already have your books, start reading and digging into the material, so you can familiarize yourself with it so you kind of have an advantage when class already starts!
Go through the first few chapters of each book for each class and write down the key term words and skim through the chapters, perhaps reading the review at the end of the chapter.

This way you have a basic understanding of the class and what will be in the class and when you come up to each chapter in the class you are not lost. Also if you read the review and it something that confuses you, you will know when the time comes for that part of class you know in advance you may have some difficulties and you can prepare to ask for help.

I am doing this for my classes and I think this will help me get the A's I want and need in all 4 of my classes. It is a bit time consuming and I know its the end of summer just one or two weeks before the start of classes but it will be so worth it.

I hope this may help some of you

Excellent advice. Another "reading" tip: if you have access to the class syllabi, read them and write down all the dates. If your instructors send you something in an email, read it. Knowing information about the class before it has started helps you so much.

I would REALLY love if my professors do that, but sadly they don't. That would also make things so much easier

Ahh, that's a shame. Mine post them online and it's wonderful...that way, I'm not overwhelmed on the first day and know what to expect. I guess I would amend that tip then if you can't get them ahead of time to this: make sure you take notes and ask questions about due dates, expectations, assignments, etc. I feel like a good 50% of my success in class comes from being there and understanding completely what I'm supposed to do.
