Former students who have done well in this course recommend the
following advice:
 Attend every class!
 Read the text! This is
essential.
 Start working on homework
problems immediately! Do not wait until the night
before the homework quiz. Many problems require a lot of
thinking.
 Do not hesitate to see the
instructor outside of class!
 Ask questions! Feel
free to ask questions about homework problems and about topics
covered in class.
