The easiest way to succeed is, in short, do what Mr. Brock says. It is honestly that simple, do it and be whole-hearted in your endeavors. As Mr. Brock has said to us many times, "Quizlet is your friend". Make the freaking notecards, please, I know you are lazy. I was too, we all are/were. Even if you do not study them again it still helps you (Mr. Brock will tell you this). I thought I could study my own way and I was wrong, you are more than likely wrong as well. All you have to do is follow Mr. Brock's advice, do it, focus, and succeed.
