One thing about this class and all college classes is paying attention to detail. It's very important to read all the directions on an assignment before turning it in. I have had difficulties with this, sometimes I just do the basic parts of an assignment and don't do the smaller, more detailed part of an assignment. This affects my grades. It sucks to do the majority of the work and do it well and not get as much credit that is deserved simply because of not doing the smaller parts of an assignment. Keeping up with due dates and getting everything in on time can be difficult as well. Assignments can snowball if they are not turned in on time. It can throw everything out of whack and mess up your schooling. I'm trying to get better at keeping up with assignments and turning them in on time. I think the biggest difference in college to high school is that you don’t have someone breathing down your neck every day about getting your work turned in and done. College is a lot more independent. I definitely think that for college to be mastered you have to take control of your courses from the start to keep your work from snowballing on you.
