Student recommendations Read the book, even before class! Come to class, ask questions, come to office hours, go to discussion sections I Make sure I’m telling you the point of things! From a perfect-score student (up from a 77!): I Read for concept and structure, not detail I Read the question carefully, answer the question and check again I Overlap concepts and anticipate possible questions while making the cheat sheet* I Don’t regurgitate memorized information

    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.
