I find I'm tuning out the professor half way through and I get hungry, which makes me want nothing more than to leave. I think being exposed to something more often for shorter amounts of time is going to be more effective than one long time a week because you're getting your mind into that mindset more often.

I generally like longer classes and enjoy spending as little time as possible on campus, so I personally would go for the once a week class.

    I'm taking A&P 2 and chem this semester and it is not too bad! The only difficulty I've had so far is pushing chem homework aside to study A&P. I'm still trying to balance that, but I have an A average in chem so it's all good.
