In order to be successful academically here, you have to stay on top of your work. If you are always ahead, then you will be much more organized when it comes to tests, papers, and projects.

I put first things first. I have my priorities, and I try to cut out all of the excess stuff that does not matter.

I do not have a ritual for tests.
