One thing to remember while you are scheduling for your college courses is to do research before! Do not register for a course without first checking who the professor is. Here are some tips on how to find classes that you can succeed in:
Make sure to always check the site RateMyProfessors.com before you take the class. On the site, you will need to first select the college or university that are currently attending. Next, look for the professor who is teaching the class that you wish to take.
Finally, look at the ratings and comments that previous students left about the teacher. The comments are always useful to look at because some students will tell you information such as whether or not it is necessary to buy the text book, how many midterms/tests there are, if attendance is mandatory or recommended, etc.
2. Asking Friends
Another good source of information as to which course to take is to simply ask your friends. Every quarter or semester, make sure to ask your friends that classes they are taking and if the course was easy or not.
This way, if you decide to take the same class as them in the future, you can take it with the same professor since you will already know what to expect.
In addition, if your friends are nice enough, you will have access to their old exams and you can always ask them questions if you need help.
Just make sure your professor is not too difficult and relatively good at teaching. Follow these steps and it will make your college experience a lot more enjoyable.
