Tips for Being Successful
Here are some tips in order to be successful in this class:
- Attend every class. While you may think missing one or two classes won't hurt, studies have shown a higher student success rate associated with classroom attendance
- Ask questions. There are no stupid questions!
- Attend office hours. Your professor is here to help you and has time set aside each week to meet with you.
- Join/create a study group. Sometimes hearing things explained by a peer can help you understand concepts in a different way.
