Hello Lucy, First I’d have the list of tools on hand when you
arrive. Second, a notebook for jotting down tips and hints during
instruction. Get enough rest take your vitamins (if you use them),
eat good meals, and always talk to the other students on your break
for extra insights and tips that you might not have caught if it is a
fast paced program. I’ve found that being clean clean clean with your
bench will bring you ease, and better work. Organization, focus,
concentration, and the desire to be very good at what you do is key.
Good Luck and have fun !
