Help You Succeed
- Your instructors office
hours are a great way to get help with
problems. Office hours are notoriously
underused by students. This is unfortunate,
since the lecture professors and lab
instructors know the material well and have a
vested interest in helping you understand
that material better. Taking advantage of
office hours is also a good way to build a
personal relationship with your instructors,
which makes learning more fun.
- Many professors provide
lecture outlines, study objectives, problem
sets, and practice exams as part of their
course handouts. These materials are designed
to help you organize and learn the material
being presented in class. You should utilize
them as much as possible.
- The internet is a great
resource for information about course topics.
Learn to use it in conjunction with textbooks
and other course materials.
- Consider taking a course at
Clemson called CU 101, otherwise known as
"university success skills". This
one semester course explores many aspects of
college life and academic skills that are key
to making the most of your university
- Some professors offer one or
more review sessions prior to each exam.
These sessions provide an excellent
opportunity to ask questions about material
that is not clear to you after studying your
notes or other course materials.
