Siri's If you have in your class for back to school, rather that be high school content or college content or just questions in general, leave those down below. What the incoming college students are most worried about and a lot of them talked about their classes and like passing the costs and all that and how hard the classes were gonna be in, like navigating to the classes and all those different things just really about school in class. If you have like a lab, then that's a four credit class instead of like a three credit cloth. Another reason I recommend talking to them is if you're worried about the level of class that you're in. Do I really have to have this class for my degree or Is there another class they could recommend? So for fashion textile management, my major, you only have to have two math credits and a stats credit. So he took me out account, too, and put me into a like, finite math class. Sometimes you don't really have a choice in the classes that you're gonna have to take like you're gonna put it in your car and you're going to see you need that class that semester. So that's the one I ended up with, and I ended up getting an A in that class, so I definitely recommend that you read. Write my professor. If the lectures were beneficial, because some classes don't really require you to go to class, which I'll talk about in a minute. It's led to me missing homework assignments being late for a test and nearly fell in that class because I was like to it so often because of the bus is like it was out of my control, and that's the way my schedule stuck up. Hong Gil, so far, say, is a typical syllabus day of class, so they pass out the syllabus door. Then once you get to class, you need to make sure that your syllabus is somewhere that you can access it easily. What I want to say about textbooks is that you might want to go to your class and figure out if you really need the tug spoke before you spend hundreds of dollars on it. So we ended up owing in C say $500 they gave us like a week notice and was like, If you don't pay this, we're gonna cancel your classes next semester, so make sure that you need the classes. Or you might just have to, like, feel off the class and see how it goes. It will say if it's optional or not, but like I said, you should go to class and fill it out. There's different ways like, let's say, I only have my final left and I currently have in 84 in the class and I want to make a 85 so that I have a flat B. I don't know. So if you just do the calculations and you're aware what you have to make, that is always so much more helpful for me because, like, for example, for this class that I just took over the summer, I could make a 75 on both tests and 100 on all the assignments, which I figured out quickly that I was gonna make 100 on all the assignments because they're more participation than grades. So then it made my final that I could make a 70 still making a So I ended up with an A in the class because I was aware of those calculations and how much I need to study. I knew whenever I could take breaks and relax and not work, it's hard and I knew whenever I needed to really grind in the class. So another thing about class is going to class and paying attention in class. So I am definitely someone that's guilty of working on the block while sitting in class and I should not be doing that. I know people say not to take a EMS, but I lose my like train of thought in the afternoon and I'm like dropping off and I'm working on the computer and I'm just like, distracted, okay, so if it's a class that you know you're going to struggle in, you need to really try to pay attention and I'll be distracted. If there are textbook reading that go with the class, that would be really helpful to do the reading or do the assignments if there's like assignment, that are pre class assignments, even if they are optional. So my accounting class this past semester had optional homework assignments that I should have done throughout to make sure that I understood the content because at the end, I was studying really hard and barely got a C. I think if I had done the reading and the pre class assignments throughout, then I would have probably done better. If I just paid more attention because that was my afternoon class, that I was just, like, so distracted in. Paying attention and another thing going to class now and Tuesday. Sometimes you will have a Class A is optional, such as like a problem session class. It just looks that it can hurt your grade really badly, so I would try to go as much you can to make sure to pay attention in the class. So some classes will be really hard, and some classes you will have take home tests where you can use open book. For example, my macro economics class that I had the second semester freshman year had two tasks and a project. Macro economics is not something that works very well for me, So I gave up on that class pretty quickly. I thought sending the video and I realized that I didn't really finish my thought on my macro economics class. I think what I was originally trying to say by bringing up macro economics is that it was a class that I didn't really think that I could do good in. So it's not necessarily, in my opinion, that the classes are that much harder than the classes in high school. You have the same class for an hour and 1/2 every single day every day that week, like four classes, five classes. However your things set up, you spend a lot of time and class, and in college you don't spend that much time in class. You'll probably have an hour 50 class, two times a week, I think two or three times a week, depending on the cloth. You might only have one class one day you might only have 1 50 minute costs one day. Another thing I would just recommend is if you know that there's a class at your college that is gonna be too hard for you.
