Making the Grade. A How-to Guide for Completing Self-Study Courses. The Guide Series in Continuing Education.
Sammons, Morris; Kozoll, Charles E.
This booklet was developed to help self-study students develop an appropriate routine. It describes steps that many self-study students have used to finish all types of courses in a reasonable length of time and to excel academically in them. The material identifies how the student can control each lesson and the entire course, master material, and complete assignments and examinations well. The booklet stresses a positive attitude, well-completed initial assignments, a sound routine, the right atmosphere for study, preparing a realistic study plan, regular contact with the instructor, and continuous preparation for the final examination.
