Reality check!

  1. Here I was lounging and watching all the TV shows when I decide to go online and check my e-mail... Low and behold an e-mail from my patho-pharm teacher telling us to download our syllabus, notes and calendar to read everythin in advance before for the first day of class which is in about a week and a half...
    She actually told us to "plug in your brains" (that means we are in for it...lol)
    Boy! Did she wake me up...LOL!

    I used to feel sorry for whoever had to read or get their syllabus in advance now I guess I get to feel sorry for myself...lol:chuckle
    Well at tleast I'm looking forward to it!
    How many had to read everything in advance for a class?

    Good luck to you, I don't have to read anything, but I'm going to read for A&PII.
    Do you think a week will be enough time to get done what you need?

    I'll be lucky if I get my textbooks ordered in time for fall classes to begin this year! LOL

    My school doesn't allow Pell recipients to purchase books until 2 days before classes. If I get an email or notice to read anything before classes begin...alot of administrators, instructors, faculty, etc will be hearing from me!

    We were asked to read chapter 1-5 for one class, and one chapter each for two other classes. Those assignments were for the first week of school for three nursing classes. I guess it's time to get busy. Let the fun begin!!!!!! lol

    When I started nursing school.....I think during two different semesters the teachers gave us materials and chapters to read before class started.

    Last week I received the following "Homework Package" from school:
    120 math problems to be done on the computer along with two math test on the computer.
    Another math test to passed in on day one.
    Lastly, 6 chapters to read before class. I really don't mind getting ready ahead of time, however, the book I need the school is having a hard time getting it in. We'll see...

    The only thing we have is a "general math quiz" the first day of class. No clue as of to what that will consist of, but since I have been in college, I have taken 3 math classes, and Chemistry, so I'm not worried

    So far no homework/reading to do before class starts....but in our acceptance letter we were told the syllabi would be in the university copy center, and we should have our first assignment read (this was for one class, not all of them, I think). Well, I probably won't have my books until (IF I am lucky)...I am going to TRY to borrow my fil's credit card when I get my money and order online. I figure I can save about $200 if I do it this way...that's enough to buy the supplies/uniforms I need!
