Schools How can someone do well at a University if they repeat classes at 2 yr college

  1. Nov 23, 2009 #1
    If you've repeated math classes just at 2 year college and want to transfer to university but feel afraid?
    due to, you've had to repeat math courses at junior college and junior college is supposed to be far easier than 4 year college , it feels scary to think about taking upper level classes at a 4 year University. What are some ways to manage yourself to be a little more sure you can do it easier?

    Evaluate your study habits and seek tutoring if necessary.

    Don't be afraid to ask for help. At some point it doesn't matter how bright or intelligent you are people will need others to move forward. If you need to see your lecturer every few weeks then thats ok. If people have the nerve to think less of you just think **** em.

    Just do what you can and don't feel stupid if you have to ask questions. Also take two steps forward one step back. After you cover a particular topic ask yourself "What does this really mean?" "Why am I learning this?" "What does this imply?" The more questions the better because by doing this you are engaging in stretching your mind.
