There are many different tactics students use to be successful, but three big ways that even liberals and conservatives could agree on are studying, getting involved in class discussions, and asking questions about anything you don't know or are confused about. Studying may seem obvious, but it can make a huge difference in whether or not you succeed in the class. Being engaged in conversations will help you remember things better and ensures that you're paying attention and care about the class. You don't wanna be the person that never speaks up. Last, but certainly not least, is asking questions. I've already mentioned this one, but that's because it's just that important. Asking questions clears up any confusion you had about something and also encourages other people to ask questions. Without people asking questions, you would just have to sit and listen to Mr. Brock talk for a solid fifty-five minutes, and no one wants that.
