If you are late for work or absent too frequently, youwould be fired. Attendance in class is as important.  Prioritize school. You have a busy life, juggling family life, job, recreation andfriendships. Put school as close to the top of your list as possible. Think of it asa long term investment in your future. Make sure your family and friends realizethi s so they won’t expect you to pick them up from the airport or take a vacation during school time.  Be prepared to read A LOT! If English is your second language and/or you arenot reading at a high level, you may find yourself at a disadvantage and will needto work harder to compensate. Also, you will be calling upon visual memory.FLASH CARDS CAN REALLY HELP!  If you have always hated school, or felt un-rewarded or discouraged in school, look into NOVA’s resources for improving your study skills. Take a pro-activeapproach. Talk to your instructor, form a study group, evaluate your pastcommitment to studying, rethink your goals, or, look into other paths for successin your life.    DON’T RELY ON EXTRA CREDIT or having your grade “bumped up” at the end of the semester. The bottom line is that you have to master the material coveredin the course.  If you have health problems or addiction problems, please seek help.
