Introduction

Chad Lavoie 9/6/2003 Journal for Week Ending 9/6 The first week has given me a general impression of what my classes are like, although I don't know what will cause a problem for me as of yet. My greatest skill happens to be finding out what problems I will have, after it is too late, so I am trying to spot any problems before I fail the first test. As of now, I know that psychology will be my hardest class this semester, because I have a hard time writing names in my notes along with what they did, in some way that I will be able to understand later. ...read more.

All the other classes don't seem to be too bad, unless Political Science or Economics take a turn for the worst later on, but the text books don't seem to indicate that. As of the present moment, none of the courses are posing an imminent danger, because I have an easy time with concepts, it is just the Names, Dates, and Formulas that kill me on tests. In order to see how hard any one class will be, I will need to see a test. For the same class ten different tests will give me ten different grades, depending on how they are made. ...read more.

Conclusion

I hope that some of the classes will give me a better idea of how bad the exams will be, before I go in and look at the exam itself. The largest adjustment that I will have to make will be for economics, because that is held in a lecture hall with ninety students, so I am hoping that I don't have any problems there. Economics also turns out to be about the only class that has not started going into some of the material, so determining if there will be any problems due to that is difficult to say at this point. Just as an interesting point to end with, this is the first paper that I have written here. ...read more.
