How to Study? Study System at Superior Semester System ○ Advantages Over Annual System Pace is less hectic Teaches you good time management Able to cover more subjects ○ Disadvantages Over Annual System Fresh students have a bit difficulty in adjusting to it Easy to feel overwhelmed No time for making up missed home works
Manage Your Time! Whatever you do, Your education should come first! Study is a full time job! Group Study vs. Individual Study Let’s Continue the Rest on the Handout
Ok, I’m too Smart I got Everything! Hey.. Wait !! We Missed Something!
Organizations want better human beings not better technicians! Communication Skills
Communication Skills will Make You the Boss!
