Hi Kylee,

As in any class the best way to stay ahead of the pack is to realize where your shortcomings are and do whatever you can to keep those shortcomings from holding you back. Once you have that knowledge you will know how to prepare for the hard work that lies ahead. What worked for me was the use of index cards, colored post-it flags, post-its, LOTS of different colored highlighters, recording my instructor(s), and studying with classmates in a group setting.

I already knew I was a procrastinator when it came to writing papers so I made sure everything else was done when I had to burn the midnight oil and stay up all night to put my papers together. Lol, I do not recommend this strategy. I am merely giving an example of how I worked with my challenges instead of fighting them.

Also, I made sure all of my reading was done ahead of time and I highlighted important information as I read so when I had to put my paper together I wasn't scrambling looking for "that wonderful quote" I saw somewhere in my reading, sigh. If you know what your challenges are, but are not sure how to conquer them I'll try to help in any way I can.

Good luck to you!
