- Write the homework in my iPod HW app.
- Study even for the quizzes & more importantly for the exams.
- Have an hour or so dedicated expressly to homework & studying.
- Pay attention in class & write notes on my notebook.
Yeah, be a better student in general.

I’ve graduated college, and I’m hoping to attend graduate school at some point in the not-too-distant future (maybe in a year or two), but at this point, this goal is kind of defunct.
However, I did learn something about myself watching my grades fluctuate:
In a practical sense, I noticed that my grades were a lot better when I studied with my friends. It’s when I studied with my friends that I was most motivated to study. Cramming or writing assignments by myself cooped up in some corner of the library or in my bedroom was decidedly boring. My grades slipped the next quarter when I didn’t have any friends to study with (and was totally unmotivated about everything due to depression). 12 months ago
How I did it: I failed many many times. I learned from my mistakes. I started out as a honor roll freshman in high school to a barely passing senior. Now I may just make the dean's list. =] Read how I did it… 3 years ago
How I did it: Making a schedule. Adhering to it. Reading all the course material and more. Putting off distractions. Spending less time socializing and more time being a hermit. While remembering that "all work and no unfurl (ing) makes jacqueline a dull girl", okay I tried to feminise that proverb but oh well, you get the point. Read how I did it… 22 months ago
