Prevent Summer Learning Loss ~ Tip #11 ~ College Course

If you'd like to try your hand at a college course, without the pressure, grades, or cost, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology offers access to classes online. The website at MIT OpenCourseWare has 1900 courses and, depending on the course, provides lecture notes, online textbooks, examples, projects, multimedia, assignments, tests, and solutions.

The courses are college-level, but if you feel you're ready, this is the place to find out. If you're still in high school, these courses will give you an idea of what to expect for the future. They will also help you understand how important your high school courses are in preparing you for college.
