As most of you are done with finals and are starting to enjoy the holidays it is worth to consider starting to prepare for the next semester. At the end of every semester, I like to visit the university’s bookstore and get all the ISBN numbers for the books I need to order for the upcoming semester. I order the books shortly after, and get them in the mail with two weeks before the semester starts. When I get the books, I start reading the first few chapters of each book. Along with reading, try out some practice problems at the end of each chapter to see if you understood the material. In doing this, you will ease your workload in the beginning of the semester and will not feel as stressed about starting school again!
