1. Start early

2. Read the course outlines
Make sure you read the course outlines from top to bottom as they have everything you need to know about your courses. Then, set up a calendar with key dates for assignments, quizzes and exams so you don’t forget!
3. Find a study buddy for each course

4. Find your own way of taking notes
Take notes on the computer, on some paper, or take photos with your phone. You will not always go back to them but it helps to incorporate new concepts in lectures and it will keep you focused.
5. Make a list!
They help you keep your head organized and not forget important deadlines and things you have to do.
Best of luck! :)
