- Have you figured out a study strategy that works well for you? For example, do you have a fixed time each day or certain days of the week dedicated to your studies?
- Do you find the eText or the videos more useful for helping you learn? Have you used other resources that you would like to share with your classmates?
- Describe how you use ALEKS. Do you jump right into solving problems, using the text and videos only when you get stuck, or do you read and watch videos BEFOREstarting the problems?

- After working through the problems in ALEKS, do you feel confident in your abilities to solve problems?
