xferlaw and strong - why are you giving me advice on things that I'm already good at when I'm asking for recommendations in areas where I need improvement?

I misread OP and inferred he wanted to avoid being annoying.

Either way you phrase it you get the idea.

Trying to constantly correct the professor or make some nuanced point is annoying to others.

Belittle your classmates after they speak up in class--especially if the person got called on out of the blue.  If the person raised his hand first, maybe he has it coming, but it's still pretty annoying.

the worst is raising your hand WHILE someone else is on call before they even get the chance to answer.

Also whispering the answers or "no, no, no" to yourself  when someone is bombing being called on.

Being a gunner that incessantly and vigorously types all class long. Either get a silent stenograph or use a recorder.

Start all responses with, "I don't know where Other Student X got that idea, but proper research shows..."

I'll second those who say raising your hand while another student is talking is really irritating. Bonus points if you bounce in your seat like you have to pee while waving your hand.

Raising your hand 4 times per class session and starting every comment with "I just want to be sure I have this right..."  (and then repeating what the professor just said).

Bringing cans of Dr. Pepper to class after you've spilled them twice and been asked not to bring them any more.

EATING IN CLASS.  Especially if you put the granola bar under the desk like nobody can hear the crinkle crinkle, when you sit in the middle of the front row.
