    Yeah, I don't envy you.

    Hearing people talk of the BAR exam, for example, makes me wilt and cry.

    302 is the class I have a report due for on Monday. HATE the class. Lots of busy work, and a complete waste of time. But, I had a couple friends who have taken it with a different professor and said they really enjoyed it. So I guess it does depend on who you get for a professor.

    PHIL 230 took our final on Friday, get to miss one day of BUSAD 202 since I've had perfect attendance up to this point, and already have an A- locked up in BUSAD 250 and it's almost mathematically impossible for me to raise my grade to an A if I take the optional final.

    You guys jelly?
    Did you have ACCT 284 with that Ukrainian Watanabe? (Or however you spell it) I'm glad to be outta there haha.

    I'm taking ACCT 284 next semester. Business majors say it's hard, engineering majors say it's easy. Hmm... who do I believe?

    I'm assuming there will be math involved. That's why the engineers think it's easy and the business majors think it's hard.

    Take it with Clem. She is great and makes it pretty easy.

    thanks guys for the responses...I'm not in any danger of flunking the class, but with the tests average being low I wondered if their goal is to fail 3/4 of the people.

    I took it and it wasn't that bad. Other than attending class, I put forth zero additional effort and got a C+. If an Agronomist can pull a C+ without trying anyone can do the same with studying.

    As an Ag Studies major I'd say it's average difficulty. If you do well on the homeworks (which have a "Check Answer" button on every question) and do marginally well on the exams you'll be alright.

    With average effort I'm sitting at an 80% going into the final, and I'm not very good with numbers.

    Let's just say it will be my last semester and I won't put forth much effort.

    Have a 7:30am on Friday, followed immediately by another one in the same room. None. Too. Fun.

    Its not a terribly hard class, just depends on professor you get. I had Whittle (sp?), she was not very good. I have had a couple other friends take it with Clem, have heard she is a really good professor.

    one of my most hated classes ever had a 7:30am Friday final, with one like someone else mentioned where the final was optional as it could really, really hurt your score. I was right below an A but high enough that I'd have to really do poorly to drop to a C, so of course I make myself take it.
    1/3 of the class failed.....I felt damn lucky to escape with a B.

    My husband got screwed a couple semesters in a row - got the noon slot on Friday.

    Clem rings a bell, I think that's who I had? Class caught me up a couple times, but I really liked the professor.
