If you managed to get good grades at midterms, you would be eager to maintain this achievement until the end of the semester, and next semester. However, if your grades already bad, then you have to try harder than ever.
Consider the following tips:
Read each week

But, if there is a gap between the subject matter that you understand and you do not understand, then it is time for you to make an appointment with your professor.
