    Your Favourite/Least Favourite Subjects in School or University

    Which were/are your favourite/least favourite subjects in school or university?

    In university my favourite subjects are:
    General prehistory
    General muzeology
    Auxiliary historical sciences
    German

    I've always done very well at these subjects with good marks and always present at the lectures.

    Least favourite:
    History of philosophy
    History of religion

    I didn't have such good marks here and sometimes I skipped a few lectures because they were boring. :o

    In undergrad I studied Kinesiolgy and Nutrition. My favorite subjects were anatomy and physiology, and biomechanics. I find the human body fascinating. My least favorite was a nutrition class that was 100% memorization. Boring and worthless.

    I've completed one semester of business school, and I really liked Microeconomic theory, Corporate Strategy, and Business concepts and skills (basically applied stats). Managerial Accounting was fun too, basically a class on how to be shady. I hated, hated, hated organizational behavior. It seemed like all they did was put a bunch of fancy labels on concepts that should be common sense to anyone of moderate intelligence, and the teacher had very little business background, so he couldn't put the information in a useful context. He also got mad at me for correcting him about basic things which frankly I think he ought to have known considering I was paying over $100 dollars an hour to hear him talk.

    My best class was Nutrition. I thought English History and History of Science were good. Literature and Anthropology classes were nice also.

    My worst classes were Physics, and classes that involve speeches.

    "...The moral man is a lower species than the immoral, a weaker species; indeed - he is a type in regard to morality, but not a type in himself; a copy...the measure of his value lies outside him. ... I assess the power of a will by how much resistance, pain, torture it endures and knows how to turn to its advantage; I do not account the evil and painful character of existence a reproach to it, but hope rather that it will one day be more evil and painful than hitherto..." (Nietzsche)

    Hmm, maybe I should also add favourite and least favourite in high school.

    Favourite:
    Universal history
    English literature
    German literature
    Romanian literature
    Latin

    Least favourite:
    Physics
    Chemistry
    Mathemathics

    I was so glad I got rid of these hard sciences in University.

    Oh, not to forget, History of the European Union, I always hated it because every class the teacher held the same old speech about how important it was for us to study that subject because this country should and probably would enter the EU soon and we can't be ignorants. eyes:
