Suggestions from the Fall 2007 class for being successful:

Prepare to treat this class as a summer school course. The material is covered very fast. Make sure you can do the MyMathLab problems and the book problems, so when the instructor asks a

question a different way you won’t get stumped.

Easy ways to doing problems and also the hardways. Step by step.

Pay attention from the very beginning cause if you don’t you will be lost. Ask questions and do all of your work.

Read the book and do the work on MyMathLab multiple times.

Advice for being successful is go to class (like I did of course) and always keep up with your homework on MyMathLab. Also always do the quizzes, they help out. And of course study!

Do the homework! Practice, Practice, Practice

Make sure to read the chapters. Take advantage of the tutors in N925 and complete all work for credit!

Study and review all math problems from MyMathLab, they will help the most when taking any test.
