In my high school, the classes are required to attend and the teachers lecture a small amount of materials every time during the classes. What I have found is that I can accomplish more by reading the text by my own. The best part is that I can actually understand the course materials instead of just memorizing how to do it. Are the classes in college like this ? Is it be possible to study by your own ? Also, how many of you prefer studying by your own comparing to attending classes ?
