Academic Success Tip - Read the Instructions
Posted November 29th, 2010 by Kimberly K. Ballard
Read the instructions! This is the most obvious advice imaginable, but every exam period one or more students will lose points on an exam for not following a professor's directions. Most students get flustered at the start of an exam, so this type of mistake is more common than you might imagine. When the exam starts, take a deep breath, slow yourself down, and read the instructions.
