Asking questions will make the course more interesting to you and will help clarify subject matter for everyone. • Be sure that you understand the foundations discussed in class. Memorizing slides before an exam will not help you in this course. • There is a large amount of material covered in this course. Studying in small groups tends to be effective in classes like this. You can learn from one another. • Keeping an inventory of what you’ve learned is very helpful. You will use it again, and you will build on it in future semesters, if you wish!
