My second quarter in college was definitely the hardest one considering that I took Calculus. I took the math placement test and I placed into it so I figured that I would be able to keep up with the class. But I was wrong and I Wish I would have taken more lower division math classes before going on to calculus. This class took so much time out of my scheduled I studied for for hours and went to tutoring but I just wasn’t getting the results I wanted at all. It affected my performance in my other classes as well considering that I was so concentrated on passing my calculus class that I did not put as much effort to my other classes.
