6. Take important notes in the class.

As listening to your lectures carefully is important, taking important notes from that lectures is also a very important step.

Some students prefer asking questions in the class and some don’t. In accounting you can not prefer not to ask question. Asking question during the lecture is the best strategy one could adept for the development of accounting concepts because if you have 10 questions in your mind during the lecture. Later, you will have 100 questions related to the same lecture while revising or practicing. So keep asking questions whether you think they are beneficial or not, but always clear your confusion.
