Fall is here and with half of the semester already gone, it’s time for midterms!
I’m current enrolled in 4 classes that require a lot of reading and writing, and since I love to read and write, I’m having a blast this semester. Although it’s a lot of work, it feels great to acquire more and more knowledge and see it all paying off once I get my tests back. I’ve had one mid-term, around 9 tests, and a lot of homework. Next week I’ll have 3 more tests and 2 assignments, and homework never stops.
It’s good to be aware that professors have different teaching styles and that is reflected not only on how they lead the classroom, but also on how they present the exams, so before selecting your classes you should take a closer look at the class description and the required books. Scantrons, green and blue books are some of the required materials for test taking. Scantrons are used for multiple choice tests, and green and blue books are usually used for compositions or short answer questions. Homework will be assigned in different forms, so you may be required to write essays, answer to some questions, or do a presentation. As I said, it all depends on the professor teaching style.
Overall Fall 2013 has been a great semester! I had the chance to meet new people, make new friends, get a different – and great – experience in all my classes, and I’m very glad MiraCosta can provide me with all of that!
