Reviewing quizzes and homework
Any athletic coach will tell you that it is essential to correct
errors before they become ingrained habits. When a quiz or
homework is returned, don't just look at the grade and toss it
aside. Take a few minutes to find your error and work the problem
correctly. If there is something you don't understand, ask your
teacher or grader. This will do more to improve your performance
than spending twice as long in general studying.
Please be aware that the homework problems tend to be easier
than the problems you will encounter on quizzes and exams, so
just doing the homework is not adequate preparation for this course.
This web page contains many sample quizzes and exams with answers.
You should try a fair number of them, working them out fully and
then checking your answers. It is more helpful if you do this together
with one or two other students in the course.
