to choose your classes
As a college student, one of
your biggest chores can be choosing classes. Systems for registration
can be unnerving, forcing you to wait in long lines, endure lottery
schemes or unforgiving computer systems. Some classes that you want
will not be available. Other classes may conflict with each other.
You must contend with the fact that your class choices will affect
how interesting, boring, easy or hectic the term will be. The choices
you make now will also affect your future school experience.
Where to Start
Start with the school's
schedule of classes for the term and the regular catalog of courses.
You should use a pad of paper to take notes as you go through and
find classes that you are considering. You might also try putting
Post-Its on pages with classes that you like. As you list classes,
you should write down class times as well as alternate times. If
there is a schedule of final exams you may also want to take those
in consideration as you narrow down your choices.
