    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    My English class was SO ridiculously easy that I almost felt guilty for getting an A. The only thing we had to do was write three, three page essays and take three tests. I BS'd my way through the essays and the tests consisted of regurgitating literary definitions and writing an analysis of the stories we were reading. Everyone's experience is different, and it really depends on what your strengths are as well as how easy your professor is. If you can put together a couple of coherent paragraphs, you should be just fine.

    Course highlights:

    This class has helped me learn and gain several important skills in writing. Coming into this class I didn’t know what to think or how this class would be structured. I went to a high school where the 3.5 essay was pounded into the student’s heads. This type of essay was what I was comfortable with.. In addition, mastering research papers and literary analyses were also emphasized. I did use other writing formats buts these were what I was familiar to.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Many instructors of freshman English assign two textbooks: a reader (that is, a collection of essays or literary works) and a writing handbook. Early in the term, make friends with the handbook: it can answer most of your questions about planning, drafting, revising, and editing an essay.For many college students, the most welcoming spot on campus is the writing center (sometimes called a writing lab). It's a place where trained tutors offer individual assistance on all aspects of the composing process.
