A very useful general study aid is the free and open source flash card program Anki. Anki makes use of a learning technique called spaced repetition to algorithmically determine how often to review a piece of material to maximize retention and minimize time spent reviewing.
Over the course of the semester, I'll be posting some decks of flash cards to aid you in memorizing facts and theorems that may be useful to your work in the course. But a word of warning! Don't let rote memorization take the place of deeper understanding of the course material, as there will be plenty of instances where memorized facts won't be enough to solve a problem.
In order to install these decks:
