I share my experiences in five areas: (a) determine the proper amount of course contents and amount of information in each exam; (b) develop an organized class-note package with filling-the-blank spaces; (c) utilize visual aids; (d) provide an in-class group assignment for extra credits; (e) improve an academic course is a continuous process.
