I felt so out of my league when classes started.
But I think I'm doing pretty well now.
I'd have to be pretty dumb not to because we get quizzed every day so I HAVE to study 5 minutes before every class (2 classes a day - 2 hours each!). Gone are the days when the only studying I had to do was a couple hours before the exam.
Anyway. It does give you a definite advantage.
But yar. S-P-L-I-T-T-I-N-G headache =(
