Tips for getting the most from csX

  • Try solving problems before visiting csX - you'll probably find that you are able to solve many of them on your own!
  • Bring specific questions when you visit csX. If you have truly made an attempt to work through a problem on your own, you will have more specific questions and we will have a better idea of what you need help with.
  • Reduce your stress by not waiting until the last day before your assignment is due to come for help! Also, this will help you avoid a crowded csX when everyone else who waited until the last minute comes for help.
  • We provide help and assistance with lab assignments - not answers. We can guide you in the right direction but we cannot tell you if your answers are right or wrong.
  • When you leave csX, continue to practice at home or in the lab. Success in computing has everything to do with the amount of time and effort you put in.
