Well, I the semester is almost over and I am so far getting a D in my General Bio class. Mind you, I am only taking this one class this semester (I already have a non-science/math BS from 1999), but I work 45-50 hours a week fulltime and have not been in any science classes since High School. I have shown the material to friends/family and they agree with me that its not your typical HS science class, its way more difficult than that! I read the assigned readings, show up and take notes, and even do my own research on the material on my own, but I am still doing poorly on the exams. (The lecture exams are multiple choice, the lab ones are open ended). I do pretty decentl on the quizes, but quiz scores are not going to bring my grade up by much. I think I understand what I am learning...so bombing the exams has been disappointing. I am feeling really discouraged that I will not even make it thru the pre-reqs and that I am destined to be working in the financial industry forever (which I absolutely HATE). Do I give up now while its still early?
