Next, estimate the time needed for each item on the list

Managing your time

Use a spiral or ring binder with pockets and use it for mathematics only.

Start each page by writing the book’s section number your are working on at the top.

When your instructor is lecturing , take notes

Place your worked-out homework exercises in your notebook immediately after the lecture notes from that section.

Organizing a notebook

Attempt all assigned homework . For odd-numbered exercises, check your answers against the back of the book.

You might place a ‘?” by any homework exercises or notes that you need to ask questions about. Also consider placing a ‘!’ by any notes or exercises you feel are important.

Place graded quizzes in the pockets of your notebook. If you are using a binder, you can place your quizzes in a special section of your binder.

Review your previous homework assignments

Review any notes from class and section-level quizzes you have taken.

Review concepts and definitions by reading the Chapter Highlights at the end of each chapter.

Practice working out exercises by completing the Chapter review.

Place yourself in conditions similar to test conditions to find out how you will perform. You can use the chapter test or a review sheet given by your instructor,
