Hi everyone, I need some advice on this falls classes. Currently I'm signed up for 15 hours, 18 is cut-off unless you can get some more approved. Currently im taking: qualatative and instrumental analysis, qualatative and instrumental analysis lab ( lab is 2 nights a week 6-9 on Monday and Wednesday), Spanish 3, Mathematical Statistics (heard its a fairly difficult class), Intro to Classis ( need some humanities gen ed), and Intro to chemical literature ( writing intensive, heard its read a paper write a paper ). Heres where I need an opinion. My advisor thinks adding BioChem would be an ok decision. Which also would need a lab. The lab is also 3 hours long and the class is 2 days a week, with each day being Tuesday and Thursday. So I'd have Intro to classics from 1230 to 145 stats 2 to 315 and bio chem 4-5 on Tuesday and then by adding the lab I'd have the same as Tuesdays just Id have a lab from 6-9. And just to throw another option in, I could wait and take the lab in the spring after I would take biochem this fall. I've debated on this for about 2 weeks now and just would like some feedback. Thank you very much for your help.

Well, biochem is supposed to be pretty hard, so I'm not sure you should add it without dropping another course, your schedule seems a bit intensive to me. Doable I suppose, but not preferable. Maybe hold off on chem lit?

Are you dedicated to many EC's this fall? If not, I would just take it.

Not sure why Im doing labs that late, just kinda seem to have lots of classes during the day. As for EC's I'll be possibly taking EMT-I class this fall which will meet 2 nights a week from 6 to 10. Also I volunteer with a rescue squad for 48 hours a month, no biggie really, usually do 2 weekends with 24 hour shifts. Maybe doing an shadowing program as well. Also chem lit is just a one hour course its a Friday 1-150 course.

Mathematical Statistics (heard its a fairly difficult class)
If your Math Stat is like mine (Calc 3 pre-req), it won't be too bad. It's sort of like physics in that the math isn't too difficult, you just have a crap load of formulae and you have to know when to use what. From there it was a lot of plug and chug. I don't remember being asked to write proofs for any of the statistical theories or anything crazy like that. You should be fine.

yeah thats the way it is at my school too

but your multivariable requires a statistics course as a prereq?
nah ive taken multivariable already and ive taken linear algebra...this just happens to be next.

If you've already taken p-chem, mathematical statistics will probably be pretty easy. Even without that, it isn't too difficult of a concept.

Well, then p-chem will be easy for you (depending on how your specific course is taught). Statistical thermodynamics is the basis for most p-chem, so they're pretty complementary topics.
