    Ladies that are taking multiple classes, how do you study for both? Do you give each class certain days of the week, or you work on both classes the same day? Etc..

    that's not good lmao

    I got a C(well i think it is a C) on a class i had to retake. Im so mad. I did well on previous assignments but got 60% on final! Maybe because i forgot and typed it up in 15 mins. Granted i missed a bunch of discussion board posts and the first week's assignments :look:
    Anyway, im glad it's over. A new 8 week course is starting and I have 2 other regular period courses :angry2:

    @shortdub78 I work on one early in the week and the other right before the week ends or over the weekend. It really depends on the set up and how hard. There is one where our work has to be submitted by Wednesday then little follow up stuff is completed remaining of the week so I start that one first.

    Yay to a new 8 week quarter starting! Nothing like a fresh new start! I’m new to the healthcare world, so there is a lot of information to take in, and my classes are self study. The reading it boring and there are a lot of written assessments for this program. But I’m going to be positive about it. I picked this program, since I can do all sorts of things in this field, and there is room to grow financially.

    I have been studying this weekend, and need to finish reading several chapters today. My book is online, so that kinda sucks. I should have ordered the physical copy.

    I'll be up all night finishing up these topics for my math class. The topics close tomorrow night and I still have atleast 50-60 left to do.

    I started The Biology of Disease this week. I'm having flashbacks of high school science classes and it's not good. Seriously hoping I can pull off a decent grade in this class.

    I do both at the same time. The workload for both my classes is about the same. And I'm so glad I'm ahead because this next assignment is a doozy (Marketing)....But so far so good.
    So my discussion posts are due by Thursday at Midnight. I read for both classes usually on the weekends or Monday and review the assignment. Usually do the assignment and have it done well before the Thursday deadline. We have webtexts, with quizzes and questions in them so that helps a lot.

    I really don't want to, but I think I am going to skip the summer sessions so I can save some money. HR won't give me tuition reimbursement since it's an online program :rolleyes: so I've been paying for it myself mostly from freelance money and savings. If I wait until the fall, I can spend that time looking for scholarships or an assistantship. Or get a part-time job.

    I have to retake my Math class since I got a D in it. I feel terrible about having to repeat a class I haven't got a D in a long time.

    Right now I'm already enrolled in my other two classes

    Colleges seriously get bent out of shape when you start asking about transfer credits and taking classes at another college versus theirs. I want to continue taking classes at my current community college and then transfer them over and you would think what I'm trying to do is a crime. I'm using the company's reimbursement and I'm just trying to stretch the money a little further.

    I have half a mind to just pull up both degrees and match the classes on my own to see what transfers and what doesn't

    I don't know how I pulled of an A in my Biology of Disease class. Not complaining. My PR class started yesterday. Only five more classes after this.

    Signing up for my next set of classes i'm debating on if I should take 2 or 3 this summer semester.

    I also need to start studying for my math placement test that i'll need to take next week sometime (before the summer classes start 5/30).

    Congratulations on finishing. You know what you need to do now so go for it!
    I'm in the third week of my second semester since starting back at school. These two classes are brutal. I'm taking Business Law and Persuasive writing. Made me second guess this school thing. I've had a lot of transfer credits (60+) so where I am in my studies is considered to be junior year of college. But I've been out of school for over 10 years. Everything is so rusty. And now I'm reading supreme court decisions and 10 plus page legal documents. I'm scared as heck because all I have left are hard classes with a high degree of difficulty. I'm not quitting though. I have to get this done.

    Yall wish me luck!!!!
