MAKING THE MOST OF YOUR STUDY TIME
Students utilizing the Academic Support Center and the Cooper Success Center need to come prepared to maximize the benefits of these sessions.
To make the very most of your tutorial time and to realize a successful semester, we recommend:
- Study your textbook and lecture notes thoroughly and attempt the assigned problems before you attend a session.
- Identify specific questions or concepts you need to address during the Group Study.
- Expect the Group Study leader to ask you questions about the material. They do this to find out what you understand, and to provide you with information and strategies tailored to your specific needs.
- Never wait until the day before the test or the day before an assignment is due to seek assistance. Study and review each of your subjects a few hours each day and keep up with your assignments. It is EASIER to keep up than to catch up!
- Always keep a positive attitude about the subject and about your potential to excel.
