Handling 6 courses.... I am just looking for tips on how I should best manage my time. I am currently juggling 6 courses : Calculus I, Linear Algebra, Engineering mechanics : Statics, properties of fluids and solids, History of Europe, and Engineering Design... I just don't seem to have enough time to fully understand everything right now... I can solve the problems but lack a deep understand in a one or two courses. I mean I am doing very well in my courses but I have a lab report and a design report due the week which I have 3 midterms. I am a bit behind in my statics course, and just up to par in everything else. I really feel like the lectures are a waste of time, particularly in Calculus. I don't learn the way most other people seem to... I can't just sit in front of a prof and watch him do problems... I would rather do them myself! I learn by proving the theorems for myself and playing with them. The problem is that one of my lectures gives bonus marks for attendance, and I don't want to fall behind or anything. I have good friends that would let me know what the prof went over in lectures and stuff. Is it safe to stop going to my calc lectures? Are there any tips for squeezing out more free time?? Argggg Make no mistake, I am enjoying it.. But it's really getting tough to keep up and try to fully understand everything.
