i am looking for some input and thought that someone here may be able to help me out.
i think i have lost my mind! :selfbonk: my school has just "revised" the summer course catalog (enrollment starts on april 11th). they are now offering classes they werent and have added more sections for the other classes.
i have never taken summer classes. i know that they tend to move at a much faster pace than normal classes because of the shortened semesters. i am really torn as what to do next though! i have to take a&p this summer no choice. i had planned to take my medical terminology
, sociology, and ethics class as well. i would be left with micro, computer, and student orientation for the fall. they were not offering the computer class this summer orginally. now they have added it in and there are 3 different classes that i could fit into my schedule. :uhoh21: i could take it as the 2nd part 5 week quarter (med term would be the first), take it as the 1st part 8 week and it would fit between my soc. and ethics class perfectly, or i can take it as a distance class. if i did take it then i would end up with a total of 17 credits for the whole summer semester. that terrifies me!!!!
the other option is for me to drop either ethics or sociology, take it in the fall, and then replace those 3 credits with the computer class.
the computer class is basic computer literacy and i am not really worried about it.
anyone take sociology or ethics yet? what is your take on how hard they are and paper writing wise? i know a&p will be a big challenge by itself in a 10 week course instead of the normal 16 (or is it 17!) week course. guess i have until the evening of april 10th to decide. i really do not want to burn myself out but at the same time want to get as much done as possible.
help! lol i will be forever grateful if someone could enlighten me about their experiences in ethics and/or sociology :bowingpur

I took Sociology over a winter semester a year ago and thought it was a piece of cake. Pretty much it was just definition memorization with a little bit of critical thinking. I had to write a research paper, too, but that was pretty easy as well. Probably one of the easiest courses I have taken.
Just wanted to edit to say it was easy because I stayed on top of it. It was basically reading ( lecture classes really didn't add too too much more than the book had) and memorizing. I basically over studied for it- if that's possible LOL...I got a perfect 100% BUT it was the only course I took that semester. My boyfriend is currently taking it and has a B ( basically he refuses my help lol)...along w/ computer science courses ( he already works as a network engineer but wants his degree)...so he has less time to dedicate to it than I did. Of all the courses I have taken so far...which is all the pre-req's except A+P II and Micro....I found Sociology by far the easiest...in terms of applying the definitions to critical thinking.
