Piroska Szvoboda Sister Cutler English 150 H Sec 7 2 nd February, 2009 Use the Resources YOU PAID for it!!! As BYU is a competitive university, most students who get into BYU have been in the top 5% in their high school classes. For many this meant that they never had to ask other people for help, because “they just got it”*. The transaction from high school to college is often underestimated by freshmen. Often they believe just going to the lesson is enough to get good grades just like back in high school, but then the shocker of the low test scores comes. Most people here are not getting A’s in all their classes which shows room for improvement. You need to step down and realize that you can do better with the help of other people, such as TA’s and other tutors. From personal experience I have found that, teaching assistants are mostly friendly and are happy to help you whenever you have trouble understanding the course material or if you are not sure how to do your homework right. Professors are most likely to choose their TA’s carefully. It is not so smart to just visit them just before exams, because that is the same time everyone else does, and then they have a lot less time to give individuals feedback or help with something. It is not realistic that we visit the TA’s once and then know how to do everything

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
