However, this semester is the first time I have taken a Physics course and I find myself having issues understanding the material. I have invested many hours reading over and over the chapters but grasp the material very slowly.
I guess my question is, before most of you went on to have successful careers in Engineering, did you struggle in these subjects and is it normal to do so (wanting to be an Engineer) ? What did you do to keep up to date and make good grades? I have managed to keep my GPA at a 3.8 and do very well in all CS and EE classes. Keep in mind that before last year, I haven't been to school in 6 years, have a full time job (IT) and am a full time student. I'm sure some of you have been in this position too, so what is your advice for keeping ones sanity...
Thanks again for the help!
