Time management is very important! Try not to wait until the last minute for anything you do. Being early is always better that being late.

Waiting until the last minute was my biggest mistake. My first test that I had I waited until the last minute to study for and stayed up all night looking over the material. Then the next day when I went to take the test I was so tired I could barely stay awake and failed the test completely.

The Hunger Games series by Suzanne Collins
