Does anyone have any advice on contacting professors?
First of all, I congratulate you so that you enrolled in the master's program. You chose a profile that is not easy to learn. The decision that you made - to contact professors who will teach courses on the master's program is the right one. Making contact with professors has a positive effect on student assessment. Therefore, if you can make contact with all professors who will teach courses in the future for you - it will be good for your assessment in the master's program and for the likelihood that you will be able to complete the master's program and receive a diploma that confirms the end of the master's program. The repetition of the program that you have already taught will help you to get excellent marks in the future, to complete the master's program and get a diploma of completion of the master's program. You can use books, articles, textbooks, training videos, training films, courses in order to recall the program that you have already studied earlier faster. Purchase of equipment, accessories will help you in training on the master's program. If you have an old laptop, then buying a new laptop is a good idea, because you can speed up the learning process and the task fulfillment process with a new powerful laptop. All that concerns such accessories as notebooks, pens and so on is necessary for you to study. In conclusion, I want to say that these three points: contact with professors, repetition of the studied material, preparation of equipment - are excellent components for starting a successful master's degree program.
