I will be a college freshman once school starts, which is on August 25th. I'm going for my associates in Equestrian Sci. And Horse Tech.

This is my schedule:

Animal Science

Composition I

Computers in Agriculture

First Aid

Horse Evaluation I

Horse Production & Management

Introductory Equine Seminar

Principles/Methods of Stock Seat Equitation

I have the days/hours written down somewhere else, but these are the classes I know for sure I'm going to be taking.

true, but it helps if you are COMPLETELY lost.... sometimes I get that way... lol

Lol, I'm going to Black Hawk College in Kewanee, IL. Its about 2 hours or so away from where I live. I'm sooooo excited to be going there. If I wasn't planning on transferring to another college afterwards, lol, I'd only have to take the horse classes, not the general education ones!!! Woo hoo!! Only horse classes!! Now that'd be great!!!

You absolutely can't analyse a piece of literature without reading it! The whole point of literary analysis is to look at the text and examine what effects it produces in the reader. You can't do that if you've never looked at the text!

If you have specific texts to study, rather than unseen pieces you have to respond to on the fly, then here's my advice for tackling them.

1. Read through briefly, as you would read any old book, story or poem. This will give you a basic idea of the plot and make you aware of key things to look out for.
2. Read again, a bit more carefully; underline motifs, thematic elements, anything you think is interesting.
3. Actually go through and study the text, analyse it, produce any coursework, do all the real in-depth work.
4. A week before the exam, have another light read of it to refresh the whole in your mind.

Unseen extracts are the nasty ones xD But in my exams, unseen pieces were always compared and contrasted to a text you had studied, so you knew you had to look for the connections and that gave you an angle into your essay.

If you believe everything you read, better not read.
