**General University of Washington Calculus/Chemistry/Physics/Statistics/Accounting Advice** (similar advice applies to studying those subjects at other schools):

**1) **Attend **every** lecture, quiz section, etc. Close the laptop and take real notes. Make ample use of youtube for supplemental lecture material.

**2) **Attempt **every** homework problem as soon as possible. Go to an office hour or study center to get EVERY question answered **IMMEDIATELY**. Procrastination = downward grade trajectory.

**3) **Make appropriate use of the campus tutoring and study centers:** ****Math Study Center Information**** / ****Chemistry Study Center Information**** / ****Physics Study Center Information**** / ****Statistics Study Center Information**** / ****CLUE (for the night owls)**** / ****Foster Instructional Tutoring Center (FIT)**

**4) Instructional Center - Special: IC Requires Qualification & Application - **The **IC** is meant for "under-represented minority, first-generation college and economically disadvantaged students." **Use the IC if you qualify!**

**5) Don't isolate yourself**. Study groups and accessing TA/Professor office hours can help your understanding of the material a tremendous amount.

**6) **Work through as many previously released exams as possible for each course.

**Math 125 UW **(2nd Quarter Calculus); **Example Math 125 Syllabi****; ****Loveless 125 Section ****/ ****Updated Version**** **(just look at all those resources)

**Math 126 UW** (3rd Quarter Calculus); **Example Math 126 Syllabi**; **Loveless 126 Section** / **Updated Version** (just look at all those resources)

2) Now you are ready for **Math 125 Final Exams**: **Exam #1** / **Solutions #1** / **MANY Exams**. When you are confident on scoring 85%+ raw on those exams (with one 8''x11'' page of notes and a **scientific** calculator!), move on to **Math 126**.

3) Work through 11.1-11.7 & 12.1-12.5. Find your own **lecture notes**. Find your own **youtube videos**.

When the** Calculus Book Solutions Tab**** **fails you, switch to** calcchat.com**** **and focus on odd problems only.

4) Now you are ready for **Math 126 Midterm Exam #1s**: **Exam #1** / **Solutions #1** /** ****Exam #2** / **Solutions #2** / **MANY Exams**.
