I need help!!

  1. Guys,

    Here are the subjects I have chosen to take for spring:

    Statistics
    Chemistry for today
    Microbiology
    English 1
    Sociology

    In all I am taking seventeen credits. What do you think? I have never done chemistry and I heard that it is very difficult. I am very good at maths and reasoning. Does this help?

    Please help me, I am so confused. I have an appointment to speak to my adviser but that is in the middle of November which will not help me much. Can you give me a web site for chemistry?

    your replies would be greatly appreciated.

    Taking chemistry and micro all in one semester might be a little overwhelming because they are both really tough courses. But talk to your advisor and see what they think. What kind of program are you in and what year?

    I agree with essarge. Two lab sciences in the same semester is tough, especially with a 17 credit load. Just be prepared for a LOT of work. Talk to your advisor first, like essarge says.

    As far as how hard chemistry is, it's kind of relative. People told me that micro was so hard. It wasn't a piece of cake, but I made it through just great. So it just depends. Chemistry wasn't all that bad, either.

    Most "chemistry in life" classes don't have labs, they are normally just concept based with some possible math. You should look into how the course is run before you commit yourself to it. I say this only because two labs in one semester can be done (I'm pulling it off this semester and will be doing it again in the spring) - but you will have plenty of papers to write for english and possibly for sociology and that might be too much of a load for anyone. Try checking in with the professors of these classes to see what you should expect from them - that should help you decide which way to go.
    Good luck!

    Hi,

    I will be doing chemistry for today. This does not have a lab session. I am good in English and I am a freshman. Spring is my second semester.

    Thanks for your advise I will evaluate the situation to see how it can work.

    Thanks again!!

    Try getting copies of the syllabi used in your classes. Those should give some idea of the workload. Also, you can always drop a class if it gets to be too much.
