Asking for Help

It is your responsibility to ask for help when you do not understand a concept.  Word your questions clearly to address your misunderstanding and ensure that you are asking your question at the appropriate time when the concept is being covered.  If your instructor encourages emails, utilize this opportunity to ask questions.  Instructors also encourage students to participate in active learning and to be a collaborative member of the classroom.

How to Study

Some tips for studying include:

  • Daily review
  • Summarize major concepts, write them out; flash cards, highlight
  • Form study groups to review and strengthen concepts
