Unlike what you may have experienced as an undergrad, you cannot wait to study and outline your courses. If you wait until exam time to figure this out, you will end up paying with your grades. Try different approaches to studying and class preparation, but make sure to not just go with the flow! Find study methods that work best for you and stick to it. Your new best friends may all love to study together, but make sure not to compromise your success, if that method doesnt work for you.
