    Hi TMNT and welcome to PF.

    All I can tell you is one word - practice. I cannot stress how important this is. Do problems at the end of evey chapter in your text books.

    Dont always be dependent on your professors to cover everything. Do some research into topics on your own. I've done this on the internet and found some good resources. I've complied links to all of them and put them on a website. [Link in my signature].

    One more thing, dont over tax yourself with studies or take too many courses in one semester.

    Of course they help you. The community here is made up of professionals in many fields. But keep one thing in mind though, no one would help you if you just give us your homework to do. You need to show that you are at least attempting the problem.
