    Mine would be Macroeconomics........I failed. Twice.

    Part of it was because we had few opportunities to improve our grades with only 4 exams and the other part because it just bored me to tears.


    Well????

    Real Analysis. I made a B but with a lot of effort. I would spend hours reading two pages. Test were take homes but that meant you could spend a day on one problem. I remember finally solving a proof after nearly two days of trying to crack it. I loved it.

    Any accounting or economics classes. I just could not stay awake during them and they always managed to be scheduled first thing in the morning.

    Physical Plant Management

    At the time when I took the course, only one professor taught it. The class had a 60% pass rate. In other words, many people had to take the class a second time.

    I got a "B". Which was almost unheard of. Most people got a "C". Very rarely did anybody get an "A".

    Two courses come to mind, one in geography and the other in sociology: Intro to Cartography and Individual in Society.

    I was briefly a geography major during my first year when my initial major was dropped from the catalog. I ended up switching to anthropology in the second year. Anyway, I liked most of the required geography courses except the cartography course. I had absolutely no interest in maps, lol. It truly was a struggle to get through it and my instructor knew it. He did all he can to help me hang in there knowing I was stuck with it till the end of the semester. Needless to say I got a C+ in the end and was relieved.

    The other course in sociology was a total pain. The instructor who taught it obviously didn't care much for teaching the 100 and 200-level courses. He made the material a lot harder than it really was. The only bright side from the course was reading Friday Night Lights, which turned out to be a surprisingly fascinating book. Anywho, I actually got a C- in the course and had to retake it. It was much better the second time with a different instructor, but I still didn't have much interest in the course.

    Quantitative Business Tools. It's a combination of Algebra, Calculus and Statistics and Probabilities. I Aced that muthafucka though. Quant II was all Stats, and you had to deal with trends, regression analysis and stuff. I got a B in that class.

    Calculus was probably the hardest course I had to take. I did the worst in animal biology. I hated the class, and the teacher was a major bitch. I should have just dropped out.

    Perhaps this is final exam fatigue speaking, but:

    Arabic Literature - Poetry.
    Gah! Poetry in any language breaks all the "rules" that you think you know. This class is evil and it must die! icon_evil.gif

    I would welcome Honors Math or Dif Eq with open arms again over this one.

    Organic chemistry hands down. Others that were bad but not as bad were calculus or anatomy and physiology

    Contemplating the meaning of life and choice gave me a headache! I barely made it out with a B!

    Aren't you glad that Latin became so absurdly simplified and turned into Spanish? icon_wink.gif
