When students take a course in a new area, or one at an entirely new school, they can underestimate the difficulties and challenges that they will face. Often, students think they are prepared (for example, studying the entire night before an exam) only to fail miserably the next day. Rather than feeling defeated, giving up, and dropping the course, we propose to help you take active steps to improve your performance, and ultimately your grade. We will discuss study techniques that do and do not work, and we will make suggestions and work together to help you improve your mindset, performance, and grade that will carry over for the rest of your years at the University.
