In order to do well in this class, you have to study. Thats all there is to it. You can't go home and play GTA all night or do hoodrat stuff with your friends. Self-discipline should be used. Every night there is anywhere from 30 minutes to 2 hours of studying and reading to do. Mr. Brock usually doesn't get mad at you if you don't accomplish the work. Your grades will just suffer, and then Brock might have a talk with you then. Another way to do well in GOPO is to be determined to pass the test. Thats the whole point of the class. A way to do that is cram as much information as you can throughout the year. This includes political, governmental, and overall high school and college success knowledge.
