Congrats on taking the class! It most definitely will be an extremely helpful and beneficial part of your semester and learning experience. As a non-comm major, I definitely struggled to catch up to the pace of the class. I would highly suggest seeking out help as soon as possible. Sarah Baker is very knowledgable and so is Professor Piacente. However, what you get out of the class is what you put in. Sarah and Professor are only good resources if you actually use them! So, seek them out, ask questions and be open to suggestions. The only way to improve is through practicing and being open to feedback. Take every opportunity to hear other classmate's suggestions, take note of Professor's assignment feedback and go to Sarah if you need some extra help.
