I completed reading assignments before the lecture or discussion classes for which these topics were intended to be presented for preparation.
I reviewed lecture notes on the SAME DAY as the lecture in order to annotate them with remembered details, consult the text for clarification and write down questions for which I intended to seek help.
I used my professor's and/or TA's office hours to get answers to questions or to just generally improve my understanding of the concepts.
I took advantage of campus resources such as Academic Success Center (ASC), tutoring, supplemental instruction (SI), workshop(s), Writing Center, and/or Math Resource Center.
I depended on last minute cramming. For example, I began to study for quizzes/exam on the day of or the night before they were scheduled.
I typically waited until just before an exam was scheduled (e.g. 2-3 days before the test) before reading textbooks or reviewing lecture notes.
I seemed to review the wrong material for quizzes and tests. I was not clear about what material would be covered.
I seemed to prepare in the wrong ways for quizzes and tests. I thought I knew the material, but could not catch onto either the questions and/or answers.
