Another tip I have noticed and have been told was to read and keep your syllabus’s of each class. They can come in handy om many ways such as telling you about important dates and telling you what to read from your books.
It’s basically like a cheat sheet for the class, but not really. We are no longer in high school, the professor won’t tell us when things are coming up because they assume you’ve kept and read your syllabus. It would be quite embarrassing to walk into class and the professor asks for your project and up I have no idea what he or she is talking about. College is a place you pay for so you might as well try to do the best you can.
