Study Tips   top

Do not expect to learn an entire course in one day. Work on one topic at a time, and try to master it before moving on to the next. First try the homework on your own, and then ask for help on the material that you have trouble with.

Before taking a course make sure you satisfy all course prerequisites. Attend all classes, and do the assigned readings and homework on time.
