Being a world class engineering student means to be part of the best group of engineering students. However, in order to be a world-class engineering student, we need to develop a plan that has the necessary elements that require this type of student. Through the course “Fundamental of Success of Engineering Student,” I have learned important elements to form part of this prestigious group.

Even though this type of students usually have good grades, they consider that asking for extra help is always the best solution to solve different doubts that they have during the classes.

I can say that I am currently using these resources, but on some occasions, I do not use them effectively. In some cases, I met with a learning coach. She planned for me week schedules in which I organized my homework, exercises, and papers during the week.

This learning coach also helps to correct all the mistakes that I did during my tests. Another resource that I have used is tutoring which it has help me in several things. For example, tutoring has improved my abilities to understand better my math classes because tutoring can solve the doubts that I have before or after class.

Having adequate time to study is one of the most important. As a freshman, I consider that I have to learn how to organize my time to have more time to study.

This behavior is related to the time management I know that if I achieve a good time management, this behavior will be easier to achieve. However, I recognize the importance that this behavior has, and I will achieve the best time management to incorporate this behavior into my academic life. Reading ahead, attempting an extra problem, and asking questions are behaviors that have achieved working hard. Reading ahead is difficult because there are so many reading in a subject such as Chemistry. However, I started reading 5 pages a day for several weeks. After doing it, I noticed that I was understanding more my chemistry classes because I already knew was the professor was talking about. Attesting extra problem and asking questions also improved my capacity to learn during the class. My last behavior that I
