I think the most important thing is not just going to class and reading the
book, but whenever you have a question, it's absolutely necessary to speak
to the professor. He's the one that knows the topic and he's the best one
to answer the question.
See your TA's during their office hours and talk to your professors. The
first semester here I sat in the back and was an unknown face. This semester
I got to know my T.A.'s and professors and went to see them during their
office hours. I feel more comfortable now and I think it's helped me do better.
Get help right away. Don't wait until you're doing badly in a class and have
to catch up.
It's a good idea to get to know professors and T.A.'s. I've actually gotten
to be on a first name basis with a couple of my professors. They want to
help. Reach out when you need them.
The only way to get to know a professor is to sit in the front row of class
every day. Then go to her/his office hours. Also, get to know the T.A.'s.
You spend more time talking with them, and they know you well enough to help
