6. Be more organized (pay attention to due dates on the AP calendar athttp://mshadi.wikispaces.com/AP+Calendar) and keep a binder where you won't lose assignments)

7. Quiz yourself using the "marginal notes" that highlight key terms, events, and concepts (they are on the side of the chapter narrative, and you can turn them into quiz questions). For example: The Quran...What is the Quran?


Good luck!
