The first thing I have to say is congratulations. The second is find a peer study group and fast. There will be a few older students in the classes so try to connect with them to help with learning the material. They will also keep you on track for scheduling because you will have people giving you cues about upcoming assignments and tasks. The third thing is to go to the Academic Counselling office and see about getting a peer tutor to help you out with things that you are weak on. These are usually offered free of charge and they can also help you with test taking skills and other things. Go early in the semester before things start spiraling out of control. Also as part of your student financing invest in a cheap tape recorder so that you can record lectures. That way when you are reviewing notes that don’t make sense you can find the lecture on your recorder and review what the instructor said. If after that you are still unclear make a note on a sticky and put it on the outside of your notebook to ask at the next class. More likely if you are struggling with something a number of the other students are as well, or it just acts as a review of material they already know. There are no dumb questions just dumb students who didn’t ask questions. You are paying for the instructors time, take advantage of this.REPORT ABUSE
