NASON Professor of Education USC Let us assume that you've work ed especially hard on the review for a test in some school course which has been Riving you the weH-known bad time. You have achieved a good grade. You've met the crisis. But what now? You have thi % course up li date now will your good re view. Don't lr' it slip awd again. If y o are not care! you will h a v to put in a not I' er rough week end of review before the next test. You will have lost the advantage with which you are armed today. And don't forget that your final grade will be based partially on the work you do from day to day. So keep the course up to date for the rest of the semester. It's the easy way. The proper organization of material which you now have is a must for effective reading and listening which will help you hold these, new heights you've just captured. Here are some steps forward in your new plan of action: 1. Be in class: be there promptly, come prepared. 2. Listen to the teacher. Take- advantage of what he has to offer. He gets the same pay whether you listen to him or not. 3. Prepare all assignments with special care. Get assignments in on time. 4. Try aiming for A's — not C's. You'll never hit anything unless you aim at it. If you aim for an A and get only a C you will have lost nothing. You figured on the C anyway. Now is the time to raise your sights. You might have A's in range after all. Too often we think of "listening" and "studying" as two separate and distinct things and most certainly as things that you could not do at one and the same time. This is where you. are wrong Your past work in the course is now organized and you no longer need to worry about it. Because of this you will find that, while you are listening to t h e teacher, you can be spending more time studying what he is saying. And you will now find that you can organize course material almost simultaneously with hearing it. You can improve on this organization of material by following a couple of suggestions: 1. Read ahead in the text before coming to class. Listen carefully to what the teacher is saying and try to guess what it is he'll say next. 2. Write short sentences from time to time — just little reminders which will summarize Workshop Patterns SAFETY-LOCK GUN RACKS PATTERN 405 SAFE BUT READY is the motto of the huntsman who has either of these gun racks. The three-gun rack even has a locked drawer at the bottom. Both racks are easy to make with simple tools. So don't delay. Pattern 405, which gives actual-size cutting guides and complete illustrated directions, is 35c. This Pal- tern also is one of four in the Huntsmen's Packet No. 24 for $1.

Do them now" while the whole I course reorganization you have made is fresh in your mind. In some respects, doing school work can be a little like paying for something you've bought on the installment plan. If, when you arc purchasing something on credit, you will have the good sense to put away a portion of your weekly earnings, there will be no problem meeting the monthly payment on the item. Daily organization of course material and the practice of putting the basics away daily in memory and notebooks will prepare you for that day of reckoning when the teacher gives you a final examination.
