Important Study Habits - attend all lectures - do not fall behind - 1 h of lecture -- > 3 h of home study - do homework and quiz questions independently and on time - problem solving skills -> practice in writing; do not memorize - ask and answer questions in class, use clickers - come to office hours (Prof's, TA's, SI's) - attend SI sessions - attend review sessions
