has anyone here taken Life Span Development?
I find it to be the most contrived load of crap I have ever tried to study. I have to snap myself out of an adjective-induced-trance just to get through a whole page:stone . When I do happen to understand what it's trying to say, it's so far away from actual science that I get physicaly angry
at the thought of this worthless mindsuck of words NOBODY uses, like operationalize, epigenetic........BLAH,BLAH,BLAH,BLAH:roll
If this is Nursing, I'm outta here...........simple as that.
I have a 4.0 with 18 credits and 10 to go this semester till I enter Nursing courses. This is the first class, Algebra included, that I have had any doubt as to what the hell was going on. I don't see the need for Psychosocial Theory to ruin an otherwise stellar academic performance.
When the insructor answers one of my questions it sounds much like the babbling in the text, so consequently I go into a protective trance during class. I have even taken notes in the margins of this academic buttwipe they call a science text hoping I could decipher some meaning. Just to glean one meaningful concept would be an acomplishment.
I will make flashcards and memorize all that I can so I can paraphrase the short answer tests.............much the same way they paraphrase science to make themselves look like intellectuals.
IT MAKES ME SOOOOOO ANGRY.
So of course, I must ask the most duplicated question on this BB.......
Is it just me?

I HATED that class!!!! But my instructor was a jack as*! We spent more time on his views on all that crap and most of it had already been covered in Psych & Soc (my next least favorite class) It's just one of those classes you just have to tough out. Can you take it with a different instructor? I almost did, except I would have had to drive 25 miles to a different campus. Good luck Brad.
