And now the pressure's on...  
My Asian Art teacher told me I was getting an A in the class, assuming I didn't manage to completely f-up the final. Whew. One A down, two more to go. She was a great teacher. I'd totally take another class from her, but I don't think she teaches anything except the one course.

BOMBED Accounting. Like I seriously don't think I passed it, which is very frustrating because I have no idea how I'll re-take it next quarter. Every section's already full, but if they weren't I still can't register for them because I'm registered in a section this quarter.
I'm just utterly retarded with the math or something. I can never get anything to balance. Add to this the fact that I'm really fuzzy on some of the concepts on the last two chapters we covered in the class, and I'm screwed. Did not pass the class.

This puts the pressure on pretty hardcore, because if I'm going to maintain eligibility to transfer to SJSU I HAVE to get an A in my other two classes.

Luckily, I'm trending towards the A in both classes. If I don't blow the final - and with the exception of accounting I very rarely mess up on the finals - I should be A-OK.

Congrats on the Asian Art class.
I would imagine if you did so well already in the class....you would do fine on the final =)

Ouch on the accounting...sorry to hear that =(
Which one were you taking and with who if I may ask? O.o

I was taking 1A with Gough in his on-line section. This was not my first choice; originally I was taking it Monday/Wednesday nights with one of the better teachers (I've heard) but at the last minute he was replaced by a crazy woman named Cimmer, who was seriously the most awful teacher I've never had. Complete catastrophe. I can't imagine that DeAnza would ever bring her back, but they've kept f-ing Bambi despite her crazy suckitude as a teacher so clearly the quality of teacher isn't guarenteed. If you ever see Cimmer (and I can't remember her full name, unfortunately) RUN.

Ack...I remember now that nightmare you spoke about x_X;;

Reason I was asking was...since I had been gone from De Anza so long and coming back...I was wondering if I should revisit ACCT 1A & 1B to review...since I never took 1C.

I took it with Mia Tipton back in the day (I don't know what her maiden name is...dropped by her office and her nametag is using her maiden name since she got divorced since I last saw her). I personally liked her class.

*goes to look on schedule of classes*
Mia Breen...looks like she's got mixed reviews here and there. And as ever the few trivial ones too. But yeah...she does give lots of homework though...but if you look past that, it is good since it makes you do the material. ^^;;

Do you still have your old textbook? I'd say try to do some of the problems and if you can still make them work, jump right into 1C. If you can't, it might be a good idea to 'start over.' I'm debating whether to take Spanish I again, because it's been years since I took it, but I'm lazy and don't want to pay for it. >_<; I wanna skip ahead to Spanish II!

Hrmm...I would have to dig around...been ages and I think I may have donated the book to the library...doh (they already had a new version about too even)
I'll have to try that =\

Good luck with the Spanish
