    Unhappy Being chased by lava and facing a wall...Introduction of a struggling student.

    Alright, hello everyone.

    You can call me w/e you want. I'm aiming for a career in Actuarial Science, and I'm a freshman in college right now.

    So I decided to push ahead and take a summer crash course for Theory of Interest for the FM exam...and turns out, I bit off more than what I can chew.

    I still can't get my head around simple/compound discounting (There seems to be 100000 different formulas, and I don't know when to use what), and the teacher is already onto annuities, two chapters ahead. Not to mention, class meets 4 times a week, with three ton of homework every night. I really don't know what to do.

    I want to ace this course and the FM more than anything, but this isn't...enjoyable.

    And so, that's me. In between a rock and a hard place.

    Why exactly are you taking a summer course? It sounds like you can't make the time commitment and that you would have less difficulty with a full-semester format. My suggestion is to talk to your adviser, and consider dropping the course and retaking it in the fall.
