I am not sure what I am doing wrong, but everytime I click "register for this class" it tells me to sign in, which I do, and then I try to register again, which tells me I need to sign in, which I see that I am, and I click to register and it give me an error that I'm not signed in, but I am, so I click again...

It's frustrating me!! I need to simplify! LOL!!

I'm new here- been browsing the boards for a while since we are way too far in debt and I have been trying to get ideas.

I had no idea Barnes and Nobles did this- but it sounds cool. I signed up as well!! Thanks for the great idea!

I signed up too and then ordered the book from our local bookstore. (I really like them. Plus, I didn't think of the library.)

Thanks for info Romans Mum! I signed up today and will wing it without the book (although will check the library not expecting them to have it as the library is quite small).

Ok, good It sounds interesting but our library doesn't have it and I just can't buy it right now..

So you've done their courses before? What is it like? I'm just not sure what to expect..

I got my book yesterday (arrived at the local bookstore) and logged on last night, but I realized I should read the first couple of chapters before really getting into it, so I got in bed and started reading. It reminded me of a few online college courses I took. A *lot* of comments by other students - like hundreds - but at least (unlike my college classes) you didn't have to click each one separately and wait forever & ever for it to load. I think I'm going to love it.

I admit though, I did feel stressed out for a minute and then I realized that I'm under no pressure, it's not for credit, I'm doing it because I want to simplify my life, not because I need to for work, or to get a good grade (A+!) or any other reason except because I feel like it. So that took a little of the weirdness away. I think it's going to be wonderful.
