Things to Know before the Semester Activity Begins
Buy Your Textbooks Early
Purchase your academic textbooks as soon as your school releases the list. While this may mean you buy handouts you will need, for early course acquaintancy.
Take Inventories Such as; Course Handouts, Buy School Supplies or Re-organize the ones you own
Go through your handouts, school supplies and determine what can be reused from last year. Then, acquire new school materials that are essential for learning.
Setup Your Binders and Notebooks
This saves time for your first week of school entry. Label your dividers with your name, print out your class schedule and affix it to the binder. Have your notebooks labels according to your classes. Do whatever you need to do. Having some simple organizational systems in place will make it easy to keep track of things when you are given papers by the handful.
Prepare Your School Activity Calendar
Get your planner set or ready to welcome your first lecture assignments. Then, as soon as you receive your syllabi you can transfer the assignments into the appropriate spaces and get to work.
