When I began my college fall semester, I had a bunch of papers due around the same time and I forgot about them until two nights beforehand. But in the spring semester, on the first day of classes, I entered every reading assignment, homework assignment, quiz, and exam into Remember the Milk. Then on the weekends, I looked at my week ahead and made sure I didn't have 2 papers due on the same day I had an exam.
I also synchronized RTM with my phone, which made it easy to change a due date in class if a professor pushed something back.
