First, be sure you have completed enough of the concept exercises to let us know that
you understand the course material. That will give you the basic C. Fifteen of these
would seem a reasonable number, but that may vary according to your personal goals.
Then, for an A or B you may wish to take some of the opportunities below.

I. Editing Opportunities

Student Rephrasing of How to Get an A or a B

Gathering information to get an "A" on a project means going that extra mile to research, study and apply what you've learned in class. Rather than just turning in a project, one could keep the instructor abreast on how the project was going and maybe asked for some added input. The instructor would then be aware of the efforts and progress a student is making with the project and the learning (he or she) is attaining.
