Is this too easy of a course to take?

<p>Hi - I'm looking to apply to UCLA, and University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, etc. I only need to take a few more courses at my community college before I hit my 60 credits and then I can fill out transfer applications.</p>

<p>My question is:</p>

<p>Is "Strategies to Academic Success" a course that someone evaluating my transcript would laugh at? It's not a particularly challenging class but one of the reasons I'm looking to take it as an elective is because I'll also be enrolled in a math course (not one of my stronger areas) and I want to devote time to studying for that. </p>

<p>I'm willing to take on a stronger courseload if "Strategies to Academic Success" would be too off-putting. I don't want evaluators to think I'm taking it too easy and only striving for "cake courses." </p>

<p>The other courses I'm looking at taking are:</p>

<p>Survey of Western Literature: Greek-Rennaissance
Human Development and Learning
Personal Finance
History of Philosophy </p>

<p>The major I'm looking at is Rhetoric/Communications.</p>

<p>Any advice out there? I'm in a bit of a time constraint. </p>

<p>Thanks for any help. </p>


<p>Hmm, I can't say anything about the Rhetoric major, as I'm not going to study it :P But if this helps at all, I took a yearlong course called "Study Skills" and I'm fine (the class even had freshmen in it). I think they mainly look at the rigor of your courses, and if you took all the required courses.</p>
