Who is tired of typing the word "prerequisites"?

  1. It's time to find a good, easily adopted, standard abreviation to this. Typing the word "prerequisites" each time is making me dizzy and I keep tripping over my own fingers . Just saw a post where someone named them "prewrecks" ....very cute.
    I thought of "prereks" or "PRK's"
    maybe our creation will end up in Webster's
    Any ideas????

    I've always just used prereq(s). Until you brought it to my attention, I guess I always thought that that WAS the accepted short version.

    I don't think I have ever typed the word "prerequisites" (I guess I have once.)

    I'm sick of typing prerequisites and I'm sick of taking prerequisites. Since I have to keep taking them I'm all for a condensed version. Pre-req is my abbreviation of choice, but I do love the way that prewrecks looks. :spin: I'm working on getting my PRK's done PDQ. My studytime isn't PRN and by the look of me in my favorite jeans I need to be NPO.

    Totally agree! I actually just completely finished all my prewrecks! Now time to play the waiting game. :uhoh21: Applications are turned in, transcripts sent, NET taken, now just waiting. I have nothing left to take so I'm taking spring off which means nothing to keep my mind from obsessing! Well my husband and I are working on building our first home so hopefully that will keep me occupied! Sorry off topic! But I agree, a better abbreivation is needed!

    I always just type pre-reqs or prereqs. I don't know if I have ever typed it all out.
