STUDY SUGGESTIONS The Alabama College System Copyright 2004 All Rights Reserved Revised by LSCC 2007-2008 11
1. Read thoroughly the textbook (ebook) and lab material before they are discussed in class. (Not everything in the textbook will be discussed in class, although you are responsible for knowing it.) 2. Take complete notes in class - the lectures should sound familiar and logical to you if you have followed #1. Otherwise, you are going to stay lost. 3. Study your notes daily. Review all notes on new material up to that day. You should be prepared to take an exam without cramming for it. [You cannot learn 3 weeks’ worth of material over a weekend, much less in one night.] 4. It might be helpful to write new terms, principles, etc. . . . on 3X5 notecards. 5. Make a sincere effort to find interest in your course material; take pride in what you are learning. You are in an academic environment, and an intellectual attitude is expected from you. Courses in the sciences are likely to be among the most difficult that you will take. It is imperative that you develop good study habits and self-discipline at the onset in order to do well. If you follow these suggestions, you will have a much better chance of showing your true potential in any course you take. Extra Credit is given to the class not individuals, only if the instructor feels it is necessary (i.e. quizzes are administered the week of your scheduled theory exams; if you score 70% or higher, extra points will be added to your exam(s). Turn off all cell phones before entering the classroom, do not answer/talk on cell phone, or text during class or lab. Labs will be done in groups of 4-5 people. It is suggested to use your lab group as a study group and for group assignments.
