Ensure Experience Points and Gamerpoints
After a major plot has been played, make sure to talk to your crew. This will give you experience points for clues and boost your crew's morale.
When looking for certain items or armor, save before talking to merchant for first time. The merchandise is random. If you do not get anything you want, reload the game and talk to the merchant again. This trick can be used about three times whenever enough game time has elapsed for merchants to respawn new items.
Soldiers are combat specialists ideal for the front lines of a firefight. Soldiers begin the game trained with skills in both pistols and assault rifles, they have improved health and the ability to wear medium combat armor. As you progress through the game you can unlock assault training, skills with shotguns and sniper rifles, become able to perform first aid on yourself and party members, and wear heavy combat armor.
Engineers are tech specialists. Using the holographic OmniTool they can decrypt security systems, repair and/or modify technical equipment, disrupt enemy weapons or shields and heal their party. Even though they begin the game with only pistols and the OmniTool, engineers can unlock the ability to wear light armor and to reverse engineer enemy technology. They can also learn to put up protective shields and to heal the party.
Adepts are biotic specialists. Starting out equipped with pistols and light armor, the true strength of the adept is through the upgradeable implants that give them their biotic powers. These powers can be used to lift or throw objects, shield the party and disable or destroy enemies.
Infiltrators combine combat and tech abilities, and specialize in killing or disabling enemies at long range. Infiltrators are trained to use OmniTools, but the focus is on decryption and offensive abilities rather than healing. They can train with pistols or sniper rifles, and can learn to wear medium armor.
Vanguards are biotic warriors. They combine offensive biotic abilities and weapons training to quickly take down opponents, and are especially deadly at short range. They can train with pistols and shotguns, and can learn to wear medium armor.
Sentinels combine biotic and tech abilities. Typically they use biotic abilities and advanced healing skills to defend allies, though they can also disrupt opponents with biotic or Tech attacks. They are more efficient at tech and biotics than other classes, but at the expense of combat. Sentinels can only use light armor, and receive no advanced weapon training.
Play as a War Hero Soldier first. By doing this, during your second play through you will have all of the money, weapons, and armor to use for the other careers.
If you want to take the time, you can max out your Paragon and your Renegade stats without using any points. Once you get Spectre status, you can get up to four free points in each ability with each playthrough. Just play through the game three times and use the points you save elsewhere. The "Unlimited Paragon or Renegade" glitch helps.

Easy "First Aid Specialist" Achievement
Find a planet that has a Hazard level 1. Stand outside the Mako and keep pressing [Y]. Make a note of how many times you pressed [Heal]. If you do not pay attention and run out of Medi-Gel, you could die from the Hazard level.
Easy Skill Achievements
The quickest way to gaining the skill achievements (Lift, Warp, Sabotage, etc.) is to stand outside the Mako and use it for a target. Do each skill with your current character 75 times and you will get the achievements for each one. However, two things must be noted. First, Neuroshock does damage to the Mako. When you see it begin smoking you must repair it. Second, AI Hacking does not apply at all here. You will need to actually hack 75 AIs or hack a few repeatedly before you must destroy them. The best way to get this one is to play the mission where you must go to the Earth's moon, or "Luna", and stop the AIs in the training facility. Save the game before you go into one of the bunkers and keep hacking them until you are finished, or reload and play again.
