If you are attending College you need to be focused on your education. This includes doing the best you can to maintain a good G.P.A. When you get out of school and start looking for employment you will quickly determine that G.P.A. matters.
Some employers even require a minimum G.P.A. level just for you to be eligible to work there! Part of your hiring process may include having to submit your transcripts that will show what courses you took and what your grades were. Poor G.P.A. or low grades may indicate to a potential employer that you either did not adequately learn the course material or alternately that you lacked responsibility towards your studies. Either way it is not a good sign to the employer so beware!
I happened across this excellent article at the Huffington Post. If you are in college I recommend you take a minute to read and study this article as it offers some useful tips on best study practices.

When you take and complete a college course it becomes a permanent “mark” on your forward moving life and career path. Almost always, each course is a one time shot. By that I mean that you cannot really go back and retake every class in which you had a low grade as the cost and time would be counter-productive and possibly not even an option. Because of this you need to tackle each of your courses head-on and with a mindset to do the very best you can!
