IMPORTANT! Please relax! You are learning new technology skills. It takes time to learn, practice and use these skills to complete the assignments. Trust your professor. Typically all do extremely well.Self-imposed pressure interferes with enjoyable learning. There is NO pressure from my side. As a side note, I have been told that I am a high grader.
