    thanks for the feed back guys i have to correct myself i counted and the course is actually ***5 weeks*** my mistake!! and the class is from 12p-4p mon-thurs. even though its one week longer then i anticipated I'm not sure how much more material can be covered in that amount of time. @LexiMena, i went on ratemyprofessor and looked her up. she seems like a no nonsense type of woman according to her previous students. (3 lect exams, 3 lab exams, and 3 papers + homework and pop quizzes) YUP! I'm in for it. but i don't have any other choice, her class is the only one available at the time i need...but such is life :icon_roll ....
    however, i am so determined to get an A in this class, i need to bring my 3.4 up a notch to qualify for better grants and scholarships. wish me luck!

You were not allowed any assistance, and if you did ask the instructor for any help, you would automatically have points deducted. Talk about pressure...

    I also only had class two days a week, so it was A LOT to try to cram in at each class meeting.
