Class – First of all, you must attend all the classes. If you’re behind already, you can’t afford to miss another day. Not only do most professors grade on your attendance but there is also useful information being given out each class period.
Notes – Also, when you attend class, you always want to make sure you take good notes. When a professor is lecturing, always write down what they’re saying. They’re presenting this information for a reason, and it is important that you take notes on what they discuss.
Friends – When class starts, it is always a good idea to pair up with someone and find a study buddy. The two of you can help each other when you need to study for a test, and you can have someone to rely on and try to help you when you need it.
