15 Awesome Secrets and Tips From Straight A Students For Getting Good Grades

Don’t just read, actively study: I screwed up the first half of college. Used the textbook as a script to memorize rather than a reference. Spent HOURS studying each day. Then, halfway through jr. year I was paired up with a really chill dude in O-chem lab. Turns out he was like 3.9 gpa. I had to ask his secret. Came down to this: Go to every lecture and PAY ATTENTION. A lot of profs will give clues as to what they feel is a point of emphasis. Great profs will actually summarize for you the main points of their lecture. Take notes of these important points. When you go over your notes shortly after class, make sure you understand these important concepts. Go to office hours, TA’s, and consult your textbook for clarification. Get copies of old tests made by that prof. Again, this gives you an idea of what they feel is important. KEY TECHNIQUE: ‘Actively study’ by generating your OWN test questions then come up with answers to them. A study group helps with this as they can tell you if you’ve made an error in your question(s). If done correctly, you’ll actually teach yourself the subject as you find out nuances in question generation that you didn’t catch before.

Bryan Cantley marries art with architecture in “Dirty Geometries + Mechanical Imperfections” Oct. 10-Nov. 30 at the Southern California Institute of Architecture (SCI-Arc) in Los Angeles.

While discovering “the poetics of the machine,” the professor of art seeks to spark a dialogue and raise awareness of larger issues, such as urban development. The installation dissects the SCI-Arc Gallery with projects — models with corresponding panels — and stand-alone drawings, all of which Cantley calls “hi-tech, experimental explorations of what I’m observing, or of very real social and political conditions.”

An opening reception and discussion will take place at 7 p.m. Friday, Oct. 10 . (at California State University, Fullerton)
