    • Only take this course if you are self-motivated enough to do it. It’s not bad at all if you manage your time wisely and set goals for yourself to finish it on time. I wrote down all of the due dates in my assignment notebook so I could see when they were coming up to remind myself or else I knew that I would probably forget.
