Review lecture notes just after class.The focusing on the first 24 hours to review and study. Forgetting is greatest within 24 hours without review!Last semester, I did not use a planner or agenda to help me organize and plan for events. I just remember things off the top of my head. I honestly believe that led to my failure in Econ 2120. Also, I did not spend enough time studying for classes that I need to study.
