Learn topics that you are taught as soon as they are introduced in class and learn them well in small chunks.
Do your problem sets diligently and put effort into understanding the material.
Math requires practice if you want to solve questions consistently under exam conditions.
How much practice you need will depend on your level of maturity (in Math).
Do not count on last minute cramming right before exams to do well.
Cramming might work (i.e. get you decent grades in the exams) during the first two years when the material is relatively simple, but if you don't learn the basics well, you might end up having trouble with the more advanced material that will build on the basics.
It might be hard to catch up once you have a gap in your understanding in the early years.

The 7 most important things that enable learning and top grades are:
Listening carefully in class - no just furiously taking notes. Notes can be borrowed from friends, or you can refer to reference materials later. Listen in class!
Ask questions in class - don't be afraid to ask questions. Genuinely engage the professor and participate in class. if you can't follow, others probably can't either.
Go to office hours - and engage the TA / Professor
Sleep on time
Find a good study group - ideally people who know things complementary
to you, or with whom you work extremely well.
Stay calm before exams - don't cram, and definitely try not to stress out during exams. The best way to do well during an exam is to stay calm before and during the exam.
