This time last year, I was taking Anatomy and Physiology. Spent 4 months in that class and I can barely remember a damn thing. I mean, what was it, deltoid, planar? That's like it -- those two words and I don't even know what they mean. We went over the different body systems and their jobs and it has all went in one ear and out the other. Wasted 4 months of my life in that class. Same thing for botany and zoology. And look, I know I'm not alone in this.
Most Helpful Opinions
Subjects like that aren't learned in 4 months and you can't expect that you'll remember something you don't use and something you've been exposed to so briefly.
Heck, I started learning English in second grade & if I don't use it consistently - I'll forget some of it. Learning a subject is like learning a skill - you don't sit down and start drawing expecting a masterpiece.0

The purpose of school is to teach you how to learn and give you a foundation upon which your future learning can grow. When you find something you're interested in, you'll find that information sticking in your brain much easier. The more motivated you are in any area, the more things make sense and are easier they are to learn and remember.
Many jobs require a college education, yet few employers expect entry level employees to understand how to do the job. They often don't even care what the degree is in. They just want to know you set off on a challenging journey that takes a significant amount of time, and you followed through to completion. If they're going to train you, they want to know you'll be sticking around... so they won't waste money on educating you and then finding you'll just jump ship when the going gets tough.
