Tips For Success
- Start preparing before classes begin. Go to the course website, look at the course syllabus, and get started on the first few weeks of assignments, with the goal that the first few weeks of lecture will be review. This is a formula for success. Do not walk into your first UA math course without review.
- Students who place into a course with the minimum requirements should consider taking the prerequisite.
- Review and be prepared.
