Question: How can I "ace" this class? Answer: It's easy!
Follow these simple tips, and you can't go wrong. 1. Keep up.
The easiest pitfall in a class that is largely internet-based is
to fall behind on readings and assignments. Keep up with the
pace that the syllabus sets for you, and you'll find the
amount of material and work to be easier to handle.
2. Use the lecture slides AND the
The textbook will cover nearly any particular concept
comprehensively, but the lecture slides will help you focus on key
concepts, and give you even more "real world" examples. Pay
attention to both, and you won't miss a thing!
3. Read through the old exam
questions. Did you know that about half of your exam questions
will come directly from the exam answers? Also, about the other half will
have the exact same format, and cover similar material.
There is no better test preparation method than working through
those questions. Do them as you work through the readings
and lecture material, and you're sure to ace the two exams!
4. Get your project on the right
track early, and make sure everyone contributes equally. Read through the instructions today, so that you have a sense
for what is expected of you. Form your project topic early
so that you can maximize the amount of time you have to work on
your project. We strongly recommend you do a volunteer
service project for the experience!
