Academic Success Tip - Follow Instructions

Whether you are working on a writing assignment (BLS open memo) or getting ready to take an exam, one of the easiest and most important things to remember is to follow your professors' instructions.  Should your paper be single-spaced or double-spaced?  What are the margin requirements?  What font is recommended?  Where are you supposed to write your exam number?  How many copies do you need to submit, and in what format?  Whatever the instructions may be, do not overlook them.  You do not want to lose points over careless mistakes
