MrsBoots... (you always have good advice!) or anyone whose finished block 2 at SCC?
Any good advice for incoming students? Like what should I prepare for ahead of time... Our block 2 faculty did give us a calendar with information but any advice on I can get a jump start would be appreciated!
My advice for incoming SCC block 1 students.... stay ahead of the game! Do not fall behind (its not impossible but makes for a long and stressful semester!). Read the power points... read the book only if you need clarification or if you have time! The books do give you a wonderful explanation but if you don't have time, then don't waste it!
Make sure you do well on Exam 1 and 2!!!!!!! Exam 1 was the easiest exam and if you start your semester on the right track then it won't be so stressful towards the end... because at the end they will through so much at you!
Pay attention to CLA - they come handy for your final practicum.
Practice, practice, practice for the check-offs... you do not want to repeat them and you need the points, even if they're not proctored. The teachers recommend practicing at least 17 times, and I agree.
Its never too early to start studying for the next week assignments. Stay ahead of the game again.
Be on time... try not to miss class and really don't miss exam days!
Hope that helps and I look forward to any advice going into block 2!
Thanks everyone for your help!
