How to Succeed in this Class

Study Techniques and Strategies

  • Study Cycles

  • Overlearning

    • I also recommend using a technique called overlearning. The idea is that you want to practice the techniques in this class beyond the point of understanding. You want to practice until the technique becomes second nature, like a habit, that you can execute the technique quickly without consulting the notes or a textbook. This will help you on the exam when there is limited time to complete the problems.

One strategy is to set a timer and quiz yourself, using problems from the homework, textbook, or past exam archive
