Advice for Students Preparing for Your Class: “Read literature assigned for each class at least twice: at least once before class and at least once after class. Do not wait to write essays until just before they are due. Write at least three drafts before you submit your essays. Don’t assume any idea is self-evident. If it is, it doesn’t belong in an essay. “
