In class we were assigned two readings, about time management, and focusing on our school work. The readings were “Getting to Work”, and “Using Time Wisely” in A Pocket Guide to College Success. In the readings there was a tremendous amount of explanation about studying, and doing homework. I have to agree with both of the readings. Each one of them had very good ideas on how to succeed in your freshmen year of college.
