"I go to class, take lots of notes, and study hard,
but I still do poorly on exams."

"I don't want to go to class because I don't understand the lectures."

"My instructor doesn't write much on the board so I don't take many notes."

"The book is too hard to read, so I don't read it. It's just a dust collector."

"I have memorized the information, but the test questions are tricky."

"I didn't have any trouble with this in high school."
