How to Make a Good Grade

As a student, you should know that you are the one who make your grade you are the one who take the exam, do the homework assignments and attend classes. Your instructor does not GIVE you your grade. He/she only RECORDS your grade. So if you want to have a good grade, all you have to do is study.

People have different learning styles. Thus you should have your own way to study. Nonetheless, I found the following helpful:

  • Spend at least 1 hour everyday to read the lecture notes and the textbook, memorize the new concepts and understand the theory;
  • Review what you have learned regularly so it stays fresh;
  • Write down the questions you have, and ask your instructor as soon as possible;
  • Stay up-to-date on homework assignments;
  • Start preparing for the test one week ahead. Break the contents into meaningful sections to study.
