SEVEN EASY PRINCIPLES

Set a specific GPA goal for college

  • Aim at nothing and you'll hit it every time
  • Monitor progress
  • Take appropriate corrective action
  • Revise your goal downward only as a last resort

Treat college like an 8 to 5 job

  • Two philosophies
    - Never study before the sun goes down
    - Never study after the sun goes down
  • Two suggestions
    - Get up and get going
    - Make every minute count

Attend class

  • How many of you cut class today? This week?
  • Correlation between grades and attendance
  • Sit as close to the front as possible

Keep up

  • Homework
    - Complete assignments as they are given
    - Work as many problems as possible
    - Work problems as if taking a test (speed and accuracy)
    - Work every available problem two or three times before taking a test
  • Projects
    - Schedule project milestones
    - Leave some slack at the end
    - Focus on the instructor's goals for the project

Take care of yourself

  • Eat well and exercise regularly
  • Get to bed early the night before a test
  • Plan your weekly schedule

Relate to your professors

  • Treat them like humans (assume they're on your side)
  • At least one office visit per course per semester
  • Participate in class, be enthusiastic
  • Be prepared to ask questions in class

Become a Well Rounded Square

Conclusion

  • Do the principles work?
  • What about the fun?
    - More time to play
    - Less guilt about enjoying your free time
    - Better grades
