How bad is it to drop out of a class due to a complete lack of interest, given that you have bought the book and won't be getting a refund on the course, and that it is not required for your degree? It's a class on linear programing. I'm sure that some people find this stuff fascinating, but the way the class is taught makes it unbearably boring.
I plan to drop a OOP design & analysis course and I feel bad already. I can't understand the instructor, even when I go to her office. I tried reading the book but it doesn't match what we're doing in class. I've tried using google but then I do it differently ("too advance" she says). I don't need the course and I'd get a bad mark anyways.
This is what helped me: "if you take it you'll probably bring your grades down or fail the class so you are better of dropping it". Spend a weekend giving it 100% and if you still don't see yourself doing it, drop it.
