You have a few days on me. I am taking an microeconomics class, microbiology, managment, and blasted speech (yuck. ..required).
This is my first summer session. Not as many weeks so at a faster pace.

I just finished Chem and I'm doing the happy dance because I just found out I really aced it! (87 out of 88 on the final - woo hoo!) Hope this one will be the same so that it increases my chances for admission when I apply in August. Best of luck to us all.

I start summer semester June 7th... I'm taking Chemistry and A & P. I had a pre-anatomy class this past semester (Anatomy Structure and Function), so I hope it will help me with the fast pace of the big A & P!
Good luck in classes everyone!

May 17, '04Specialty: Burn/Trauma PCU ; Joined: Apr '04; Posts: 288; Likes: 14I'm taking Microbiology Mondays & Wednesdays, starting tonight, and Nutrition on Thursday nights. It's my first set of major prereqs - I took Developmental Psych last fall but that was a joke since all the tests were, no joke, multiple-choice take home, 25 questions each (and people STILL failed!). Anyway, I'm hoping I'll do really well... I was never much of a science buff during my 1st degree, but then again, I wasn't interested in ANYTHING other than music at the time!
Good luck to all of you!
May 17, '04Occupation: RN Specialty: 12 year(s) of experience in Peds ; From: US ; Joined: May '04; Posts: 38; Likes: 4I've got an 8-week OB/Peds rotation this summer starting tomorrow. 4-weeks OB, then 4-weeks peds. I'll be in clinical tuesday and wendesday from 7-4, and thursday we've got a full day 9-3 (hour for lunch) of lecture, on hour lab a week. We'll have a quiz every week and there is a TON of reading. We did have the reading assignment last week, but I needed to wind down from the spring before the summer started so I haven't gotten very far.
How do you get all of the reading in AND study the material at the same time??!!?? I'll be lucky if I can get everything read each week, don't know when I'll get a chance to go back over and study the material. I do tape my lectures so that I can re-listen and streamline my notes from class.
good luck all,

I wish my program required that - it would make me get off my duff if it was for credit (which I should be doing it anyway with my Type 1 diabetes, but I'm too darn busy studying! LOL)
No, I'm really glad that my school requires those.... I've been wanting to join the gym here locally for years, but haven't been able to (they don't have a childcare area). I really wanted to take yoga over the summer, but it closed before I had a chance to register!

This is my first class in almost 20 years so I'm just a little bit nervous about it - especially doing it all on the computer.Hi all! Well, summer school starts tommorow. What's everyone else doing in summer session? When are you starting? How do you all feel about summer classes?
My husband and the kids all have their own "computer spaces" and I've just always used one of theirs. A lot of people here suggested I get my own place to study, so this weekend I went out and bought an L-shaped desk - one side for the computer (that I'm going to steal from one of the kids), :chuckle, other side for books, etc. and it's going in "My Room" away from the family. I have to share the room with 2 yacking parakeets that I might end up "setting free or roasting" before the Summer Class is over - but still - I'll finally have my own little study place to finally do this...
