2. If Kuhn says “This is important,” highlight it because it will show up on the next test or quiz.

3. Take hand-written notes: Writing notes helps to seal them in your memory.

4. Laugh at Kuhn’s jokes. No matter how cheesy, everyone appreciates laughter.

5. Ask questions: He doesn’t bite.

6. Check his website frequently: He could post an extra credit assignment 5 a.m. on Christmas morning.

7. Do the practice problems: When you drive, you don’t just listen to someone tell you how to drive. You do it. The same goes for learning physics.
