If you are new to the university , look at what I got from a maths intermediate algebra book.
The authors stressed on 5P.
P = Proper
P = Prepare to class, lecture, laboratory
P = Prevents
P = Poor
P = Performance
--- let me elaborate what I understood by that:
proper = put on the right dress; attires; clothings, I.T. beg ; if you want to look nice iron your clothes
prepare = plan to class , wake up a bit early, take breakfast like 2 roti plus a jug of hot milo and fruits
prevents = prevents from injury like .. rushing to class on a motorbike driven at fast speed. Why? u r late
poor = poor preparations like no pen, papers to write some notes , poor sight at the back of a big hall ..you can't see the lecturer's method of solving the maths problems
performance = if you do not prepare well .. you will end up missing so many important tips for Test1, Test2 and the final examination of the semester.
Thats it! so simple.
