    For me, working presolved problems was the most effective study method. Take a look at Schaum's Outline Series, College calculus...available at any college bookstore, or Barnes Noble. Take a look at them.

    One thing to keep in mind when reading ideas about how to improve your studying: Don't try too many new things at once. Find only one idea (or maybe two ideas) to work on, and really make it good. Then you'll be able to do well in that one area. If you try too many things at once, you'll frustrate yourself.

    The BEST study skills improvement plan is in the second link, but remember that it's really supposed to be sequential. After taking the self-assessment, you should work your way through the "Lessons" under Course Material -- and don't rush. Building good study skills and habits takes time and repetition.
