I've been immersed in school and work the last couple of days, particularly school. Since it's summer session, we move fast. We had a test yesterday, one today and we'll have one next class, on Monday (our classes run Monday to Thursday at my school.)
It scared the shit out of me to go back to school. I wasn't a particularly good student back when I got my first degree, in Political Science. I was so interested in the subject, it came really easily to me. I rarely read the textbooks and still got A's and B's. With my current curriculum, lots of science courses required for entry into Pharmacy school, this is not the case. I've had to knuckle down and read the textbooks, and study a lot.
The course I'm taking this summer is one of the courses that weeds out the weaklings. I was really nervous going into it. This test, on antibiotics, scared me in particular. There was a lot of information to know. After taking the test yesterday, I had to go home and take a nap. I was wiped out.
We got our scores today. I had an 84-- out of 80. The instructor builds extra credit into the tests. This bumped my grade from a middle B to a low A. I'd celebrate, but I have to begin studying for Monday's test on microbial metabolism and the principals of disease and epidemiology.
