The Student Survival Manual 10

10 things to know about the class schedule

1. It's a listing of all courses offered -- when, where, and who is teaching what.
2. Sometimes the schedules are even accurate.
3. Check for the possibility of registering for new course sections which may open up at the last minute.
4. When registering, also check for dropped sections. It can be very depressing showing up for a class that doesn't exist. It can also be embarrassing.
5. A new schedule will likely be available several weeks before each term. Read it.
6. Most schools now have their schedule on the computer network and/or web site -- check this out, of course. Also, the online schedule may be more up-to-date than the printed version. Then, again, maybe it won't.
7. Study the schedule well before you have to register. Like many weeks before.
8. Remember to check the final exam schedules which usually are included with the class schedule, and make a note of each final on your calendar.
9. The old printed schedules can always be used to start campfires in an emergency situation if you are lost in the woods in Idaho.
10. They also can be used to read diligently late in the evening as a possible remedy for insomnia.
