You should think of your syllabus as your right hand man. Keep it close by your side and review it regularly during the semester. Things you’re looking for include: How will you earn points? When will you earn points? When are things due? What do you have going on in your personal life during these time periods? Set priorities. Pay close attention to what your instructor says about class participation. This will help you to work ahead as much as possible, keeping your stress levels down.
