            2. Organization

                  2. Believe in yourself
                    1. If your having a rough time in this class, thats a good thing. You shouldn't be able to come in and know everything. It will all work out in the end.
                    2. Learn how to take notes
                      1. There are multiple ways in which you can take notes in order for them to work for you. For example, Cornell style notes, highlighting, mind mapping or drawing them.
