Is it true that if you are good at math but bad at computer programming languages like C++, Java, etc and writing papers and essays you will fail science, engineering, along with business/economics? What about being an engineer, an economist, an accountant or a scientist?

That's a crock. If you have a weakness in a specific area of academics, then work a little harder to master it. If you tell yourself you aren't good at something, then that's exactly the result you'll get. If you tell yourself that you'll improve, then THAT's the result you'll get.

First time I took Inorganic Chemistry, I failed miserably. The university I attended used alot of recorded lectures and it was easy to doze off watching them. I transfered to another school and the Prof who taught it was motivated to get his students to understand. It was great!!! So, if you have the right motivation and you haven't unconsciously, set yourself up to fail, anything can be learned. I will say that some people seem to have natural abilities in subjects that give them an edge.

What year was that?

Why don't I get credit for taking enough classes to have a Bachelor of Science?
Only the nurses get credit for four year degrees?

Couldn't your MD husband help you? Obviously, he had to do more than pass to become a Doctor.
