Don't be afraid to ask questions. If you don't understand something, ask your instructor to repeat it. Every day after school do 3 things: 1) Write down what your instructor told you. As much as you can remember. 2) Write down what you had difficulty with and what you need to work on. 3) Take some index cards with you and write down 4,5 or 6 reminders to prop on the dash the next day.

If you demonstrate to you instructors that you are focused and engaged, they will be more helpful to you. Remember, you make your own good luck through hard work and diligence.

Hey Monkfish, what company will you be driving for? I'm starting school a week and a half behind you driving for CFI. Good luck to you, if you could handle being on a fishing boat for two weeks at a time, trucking should be no sweat.

Btw your avatar cracks me up!
