There are some things to remember as you complete this work assigned in college. We have 10 effective homework tips for college students.

Hints, Tips, and Suggestions

  1. Do not skip your lab and go to a lab offered on another day, but for your class, if you do miss a lab.

  4. Know your professor’s office hours and d not be afraid to go to visit the professor if necessary.
  5. You can hire a graduate student as a tutor for a relatively low price.
  6. Check out some of the virtual science sites that can be found online, you will be amazed at what you find.
  7. Attend extra classes when you do not understand a concept. Most science classes are held in large lecture halls. You can go into your same class offered at another time if you want to hear a lecture twice. Do not be afraid to do this.
  8. For vocabulary memorization, consider using plain old-fashioned note cards. Some things just always work effectively.
