I'm starting college in Aug. I will be going full time. I have 3 kids,but will have daycare for them. My biggest downfall is I am a perfectionist and soo afraid to be wrong that in high school I often did my homework/papers but never turned them in. I am over this fear now...i hope...I want to take anywhere from 3 to 5 classes. Should I start with 3 first and see how i handle it or just go for the max of 5 and hope I can handle it?Answer Question

How many credit hours is that? 3 classes at 3 credits each is 9 hours toward graduation and not even considered full time. Then again you have kids so maybe full time isn't an option. I've taken labs that only count as 1 credit hour even though you are in the lab for 3-4 hours a week. I've been told that for every hour you spend in the classroom you should spend 3 hours preparing, studying, doing homework. For a regular college Freshman with nothing to do other than graduate on time, I recommend 16-19 credit hours per semester. For the mother of 3, you have to consider how much time and help you can expect. Failure is not an option here. Also keep in mind that 80% is a lot closer to 100% than zero is!
