Four Things to Do Now in Your Classes


-Buy the textbook: Search for the cheapest copy, get it and read it. Don’t get behind on reading assignments.
-Keep a calendar: successful students keep a calendar of upcoming assignments and often mark down by day when they need to do work on those assignments. It can be a physical notebook calendar, Apple calendar or Microsoft Office Outlook. The computer versions have the advantage of automatic reminders.
-Work ahead of deadline: If you wait until the last minute you probably won’t do your best work. If something comes up in your life you may even miss an assignment. If you work ahead you can do better work and not miss deadlines.
-Start work now on big assignments: If you have a big paper or speech or some other assignment coming up in a class, get started now. You can do some basic web surfing to come up with a topic and maybe even start research. Spreading out the big work will make life much better in the middle and end of the semester.
You can do this. Yes, you can.
