So I dropped out of calculus today.  After 2 tests and being so lost I couldn't even stand it anymore I just quit.  Alot of the problem is from how I learned in high school, FORMULA SHEETS!  Here apparently high schools don't do that, so everyone remembers all the formulas and I don't because I never bothered to memorize them.  So on a test and I randomly need to know something, like a trig identity (the complicated ones they told us not to bother memorizing in high school), I have no idea.

I guess I technically didn't drop out, but I talked to the Dean and transferred into pre-calculus.  It sounds like high school pre-cal...yeah... But at least I'll learn it the proper way this time and not rely on formula sheets.  I'm almost 2 weeks behind in that class now, but I'm hoping it will be easy to catch up since I've done 85% of the material before.  Tomorrow will be my first time in that class... all I'm hoping is that I don't walk in on a test day... -_-

Oh dear, I felt that way in my algebra class at FMU, I barely passed it with a D. I was so lost and the teacher didn't care and didn't help any of his students. He was a complete ass.
Goodluck in your pre-calc class! I'll keep you in my thoughts that you're able to pass. *Hugs*

I did somthing similar like that for science, i was taking Human anatomy when i realized i needed to have taken biology in high school, even though in the pre-requisite it said you didnt' need biology. so, im planning to take history of science which apparently is the easiest science for me, since i've always taken basic science in high school. only problem with history of science is...its a popular class and is always filled >..< the Tier system at my school is a little bit complicated >..
