Read the assigned reading at least twice; underline relevant points. Budget your time: diffcult subjects will require more study and time. I suggest you tackle the easier subjects first, to get them done on time, and then devote the remainder of your time to the more demanding areas. Find a quiet place to study with few distractions. Do budget time for socializing, so you do not feel deprived, but remembering that classes are important also. Do not skip attendance, do not skip meals, schedule time for exercise.
