Spring Semester, what's goin' on?

Well for me...

I finished my Private Pilot training last semester (actually the only person to manage it, our FAA guy ran off the next day and thus the other two guys who were ready for their checkride, both good friends of mine, got screwed over), so I'm starting my Commercial Pilot's License flight training Friday morning.

I'm taking Commercial Ground (Performance & Regulations), Commercial Flying, Brief Calculus with Applications, Composition II, and Sociology. Altogether it's 16 credit hours.

Still working at the airport (line crew) and attending SOSU.

So what's everyone else taking this semester? Still enjoying it?

At Delaware Valley College right now, in my Sophmore year. I'm studying dairy science, and hopefully I can get a minor in either business or agronomy. The school work is ok, but I am having a pretty good time at school overall.

I finished putting myself through line school last October, and now that I'm a lineman I hate it.

I just started my first semester of formal collage, going for Information Technology, once I get a little further on I'll decide if I want to go the Networking, or Computer Programing direction.

I just turned in my application three days ago for graduate school. I'm 15 hours short of Degree #1 (BBA-Acct) and hopefully about to be headed towards Degree #2 (MSA-Tax) and another 40 hours of class work.

My class schedule this spring inclues Managerial/Cost Accounting, Accounting Information Systems, International Economics, and Principals in Income Taxation.

Hey Fords&Farmalls.... what kinda Red power you got? I've got a 49 Cub and hopefully a line on a Super C near me.

Spring semester starts next wed. for me at York College of Pennsylvania. I'm in my sophomore year majoring in Mechanical Engineering. The stuffs tough, but there isn't anything I'd rather do. And yes, now I know why there are so many engineers with their heads up their you know whats. There are alot of students in the program because they are good at math and physics but struggle to find the spark plugs in a diesel engine. Trick question if you were wondering. I'm trying not to be one of those.

My major is Business Management. Currently I'm taking Selling technique, Employment law and some class in which you run a company (I forgot the name of that class).

Employment law is by biggest worry since I have really tough professor. We had first exam few weeks ago, 7 our of 8 of us in the class failed that exam.

Well, the way things sit right now, I will graduate next spring. I have an Environmental Studies internship, a Butte field study, Criminology, Environmental Sociology, Sociology, Business Writing, and Interpersonal Communications this semester, for a total of 18 credits. I can't wait to be done, again.

Unfortunately you better get used to those expensive books and programs. I never used either of those programs but know Matlab is installed on some computers around campus. I've used a program called MathCAD though, and learned from experience, "Give everything a chance, a program that may seem useless initially can really help in the future."

This semester I've got; Strength of Materials w/ lab, Engineering Math, Circuits w/ lab, and Thermodynamics w/ lab. So I've pretty much got my work cut out for me. But still enjoying it? Yeah!
Best of luck with the upcoming semester.

How much has everyone spent on books?

For Commercial Ground (AVIA-2083) alone, I had to buy:
-Instrument/Commercial Pilot textbook - $170
-Aviation Weather & Weather Services - $83
-Commercial Pilot FAA Knowledge Test handbook - $64
-The Advanced Pilot's Flight Manual - $95
-Aircraft Weight & Balance handbook - $34
-Commercial Pilot (ASEL/ASES/AMEL/AMES) Practical Test Standards - $14
-Cessna 172 Pilot's Operating Handbook - $35
-Cessna 172 Checklist - $10
-------------------------------$505

Dropped another $20 today on the Federal Air Regulations book for '08. Nothing like reading government text to put you to sleep...

I spent a bit over $1100 altogether.
