Summer Courses

Hi! I'm really trying to take summer courses at my community college. I'm taking 15 credits now and it's not super overwhelming. I'm incredibly and insanely driven...and to get all my courses out of the way I have to take 10 summer courses. I need to take...
Bio I...(4 Credits)
Accounting I...(3 Credits)
Macroeconomics...(3 Credits)

I don't really care about my summer time, again I'm super driven to get where I need to be...but is it way too much or can I handle it. I have a 3.66 so I'm decently smart enough to handle them...I just have heard how condensed these classes are and aren't really sure what to expect.

    I've taken all three of those. Except at my CC, Accounting 1 was 4 credits. Anyway, summer classes are a lot more condensed. My CC splits the summer up into two sessions, so you can take one summer course and then another, which does make things easier. Macroeconomics isn't too fast-paced, seems like an average-difficulty summer class. Bio and Accounting will be tricky, simply because of the amount of information you have to learn. I'd divide them up into two different sessions if you can. That's the nice thing about summer courses, they're more focused. Instead of taking, say, 5 classes over 15 weeks, you can take 1 or 2 over 8 weeks. If your summer sessions are as short as mine, I would not suggest taking them all at the same time.
