People take summer school to get ahead. Instead of taking a course over 5 months, it’s in 5 weeks. It’s an extremely condensed version of the course and honestly, you will hardly remember anything by the end of it. It should only be taken to “get it over with”.
I have taken 3 classes in 3 years. I repeated one of them because the course went by so fast, and I don’t remember anything from the other two. So I should have taken only one of them. It all depends on how fast you can learn and retain information.
Second, I don’t know how the hell some people can manage two summer courses. Props to them.
Anyway my mini rant is I always hear “You’re taking summer school? YOU ARE SO SMART”. Those people don’t take into consideration said person’s success in the course. They could be getting 55%… or 99%. It’s relative. OR when people see someone taking a course 1/2 grade level higher: OMG YOU R SO SMART. No it doesn’t mean anything. I could be taking this course now… or 10 months from now. It makes absolutely no difference when I’m taking it.
chemistry is hands down one of the dullest class I have had to sit through. My teacher talks and talks and talks ever so quietly. I sit at the back so I only hear some of the things he says and that’s dependent on how hard I try to listen.
