Before you sign up for one of my 8-week classes, make sure you understand what you're getting into. An 8-week class has the same amount of content as a traditional 16-week class, but you will have half the time to do it in. That means you'll be writing 5-page essays in about a week and a half each. You'll write a 10-page research paper in about 4 weeks. And you'll do all of this while doing all of the other required assignments, such as reading, homework, and discussion. This is doable if you are hardworking, motivated, and manage stress well. However, this class is not suitable for a student working full-time and taking multiple classes or taking a full load and working a lot of hours. Know your limits.
If you're on the waitlist, email me. I may be able to help you out sooner.
You're expected to have the textbook on the first day of class, and if you don't have it, you will not be excused from exercises that require it. In such a short class, you'll get behind fast if you don't have your book.
