You start studying:
During the first week of a class
A few days before the first test, if you're lucky
When your grade is in jeopardy
You take notes:
When you feel like it, or when you're pretty sure you won't remember something
Do you do extra credit assignments?
Depends on the assignment and the chance it will make a difference for your grade
Only if it prevents you from failing
If you have to write a big paper:
You spend weeks researching and rewriting it
You'll have your friend look it over before you turn it in, but you won't go overboard writing it
You fire it off the morning it's due
Do you do the assigned reading for your classes?
All of it
Eventually you'll read the important stuff
No, that's what lectures and borrowing notes are for
