Then I have three other classes to worry about while studying so hard for those two.
I think you will find your first computer math class to be very diff then a math class, if they still really start at the beginning Same with the first coding class.
If you are afraid of them, i mean the studying, you wont like them. Here is short what i learned from my college 'how to learn class'
short version, lol:
look through the book for the class, page by page. See anything interesting? Something at the end of the book.
Now with each chapter you do, do the above. Read all the questions at the end of the chapter. Now go back and read all the titles, and the captions, the intro and the questions again.
Now go back and read the first sentence of each paragraph. Now read the chapter. Now answer the questions.
If you read the chapter 5 times, you get A, 4 times is a B and 3 times is a C.
If you cant find anything interesting, then force it! You have to have a simple goal, to answer just one interesting thing. Sound easy, and actually it can be, just have to get used to it.
I forgot.. in a 3 ring notebook, draw lines down the center of each r side page. ON the left side, write down the main ideas of each major paragraph. Highlighted when you do the 5th reading.
When you take notes in class take them on the right side, anything that matches the left is on the test, and anything they say is on the test too, lol.
I may have the last part wrong the drawing the lines.. I cant remember exactly how that worked, it was a while ago, lol.
You can do it, be happy, You learn better when you are happy and interested, and always keep small candies, life savers, whatever, to eat, and ALWAYs take 10 minutes every hour! walk around..
