So I did poorly on my math skills assessment and I have to take a beginner course first semester. Then I have to take the standard Math I in second semester. Second semester also has Math II, will I be able to take that one in night school over next summer?

What are the codes for the standard one and beginner one? So I know what I got myself into.

Are you talking about finding the classes? (A4085)

So in that example. A is the building, 4 = fourth floor. 85 is room number.

lol seems like ICA blows....

so what are my chances of actually passing the class if i don't show up?

what do you have to do really?
ICA is the biggest waste of money. Trust me when I say this. You dont need to study for it. The in class modules are relatively easy. Even if you didn't study for one of the inclass tests all you need to do is play around in microsoft word to find the commands.

For example: They might ask you to change the font size in the text and change the font type. Its basic commands in Word, Power point, Excel, and Vista. Dont worry about it.

Could you upload your schedule. I am not to certain. I can tell you if you have a copy of the schedule. I know the top has the course code and the bottom the room number.

ICA is a complete joke of a class. The course is divided into the 4 programs that it's based on (word, PowerPoint, Excel, and Access). First they have to decide if you need to take ICA in the first place. You go to one class where you complete 4 tests (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Access) if you get 85% or higher in any of those (not easy when you've never used them before) then you don't have to do any work/tests for that specific program. Now if you get lower than 85% in all of them, then it's time to take out your wallet!

You have 2 options, either pay $25 for each program (4 of them) or you can pay a one time fee of $80, you can buy these at the Seneca store. What you get for your money is access to a training website, it teaches you all the basics of the programs you will be using, and will allow you to pass the tests that take place. Basically your schedule looks like this, Week 1 - Do work on Microsoft word (you can go to the class if you feel the need, but you usually do this on your own time), Week 2 - Do a Microsoft word test, Week 3 - Do work on PowerPoint (and so on). Whether you complete the online tutorials is up to you, the only thing they are there for is for you to do better on your test.

I can honestly say without a doubt that ICA is a complete joke of a class, I never completed even one of the 'modules' (online tutorials you pay for) and I managed to get 90-100% on every single program, even ones I've never used before in my life. They ask you common sense questions like "change the size of this text", you can easily find out anything you need to do just by navigating the program for 10 seconds. So to anyone who is worried about ICA, don't be, it's a complete joke and the only thing you need to do is pass (the only marks you can get are incomplete or satisfactory), it's just there for people who are new to computers.

If I remember correctly you should be at Seneca @ york. Basically this is how it works.

T stands for Technology building (rented from york) this building is attatched to the main one by a bridge on the second floor, you can tell it's the technology building just by reading some signs.
S stands for Seneca building (main building) This one has all the English/science buildings, and it's were the Seneca store and library are located.

The second number stands for which floor it's on.

The last three numbers are the room number.

So S2150 means Seneca building, 2nd floor, room 150.
T4044 means Technology building, 4th floor, room 044.

I think that's the gist of it, someone correct me if I'm wrong :p

T = Building T

2 = Second Floor

Room = 108.

S = S Building
1 = 1st floor
Room = 208.

I dont go to Seneca at york I go to Newnham but it should be the same.

Yup. I remember changing around the times on my courses last year. You can do it.
