I'm not a fan of studying philosophy, though I like to listen to other analyzing it. The class is fun and interesting, even half of the time I don't understand much till the teacher explains what's going on. Textbook is required. A lot of reading, a lot of assignments and a lot of note-taking.

Take notes, and listen. If you listen to the teacher's slides (Which is NOT hard to do -- considering the teacher's great speaker skills), you've got most of the homework done. Derrick lets you use your notes during every in-class assignment, so if you take good notes and are a decent critical thinker, you're good to go.
