Course load advice

  1. Hello everyone. I need some advice on course load. Here's my story.

    This summer I registered for Eng1 and Soci1 at my local community college.
    I finally had the courage to do it! I did well on my placement test and that's all I needed.

    Next week I have to decide on how many classes I will take in the fall.
    I'm currently working part time (8:15 a.m. to 2:15 p.m. Mon-Thurs) and feel I can handle at least the following three. Eng2- 1 x week, A&P-2 nights a week and a Linear Math-2xweek. I have to complete at least 8 courses before I began a take a nursing course in 9/05. Do you think this will be to much work? Let me in on all of your secret's and triumph's. I'd really appreciate your thought's.

    I think it all depends!!!!

    I always like to take a math because I know there areno projects due at the end of the semester and no papers to write. I work 25 hours a week but in a job where I can study and do all of my work etc. As long as you think you can keep up with the English writing and the AP studying, then go for it!

    I think that you'll do fine as long as you stick to a schedule. Good Luck with everything

    So you will be in class 5 nights a week? You are brave!

    I'm doing 3 courses now, but one is totally online (I am actually finished with it. It was a "work at your own pace, but tests have to be done by xxxx dates" and I finished it early, including midterm and final), one is a "hybrid" meaning mostly online, but with 4 class meetings (the final is Monday), and then my last class 1x per week at night.

    I would say it could certainly be done if you are determined and do not fall behind. I have 4 kids and hubby isn't a great help around the house, so there is no way I could swing being out that much. My kids are old enough to be home by themselves (as long as my oldest is home), but everything would still fall apart w/out me! :chuckle
