As I discuss in my book Higher Learning: Maximizing Your College Experience, students who win in college employ systems techniques in their approach. They build solid teams: faculty and TA office hours, tutors, advisors and mentors, strong study partners and accountability groups and more. They structure and manage their time so that they know where they are supposed to be and what they are supposed to be doing (responsibly building in social time and downtime rather than allowing that to dictate their schedule). They study the game and develop solid preparation and work techniques for each of their courses. They practice regularly, staying on top of their readings and assignments, previewing and reviewing material daily. And they properly prepare for game time (exams) by creating game-like opportunities beforehand to test their knowledge, their ability to answer questions in a given time frame and their performance under pressure.
