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
