    So, I'm registering for Uni, and when I go to sign up for a course, I need to take the tut and the lab with it. How should I make my schedule? Like the order? Like, first tut, then lab, then class?

    Tutorial.

    I would recommend Lecture, Tut, and then Lab. Tutorials are there to explain a lecture. Such method can be compared to teaching a child how to swim. Push him off to the deep end first, and then teach him the techniques. It is the fastest way of learning.

    That sounds pretty good. Unless someone else can come in this thread and give a reason not to do it this way, I think I'll do it.

    Also, does having the lecture, lab and tutorial count as one class? Or three?

    Wow, at least at my Uni, theres no "tutorial" just the Lecture and the lab. You learn about things in the lecture and then apply them in the lab.

    Sorry, but I suppose i wont be able to help you with this one hehe.

    Lecture, Tutorial (which are useless since most are taught by TAs), then Lab if there is one.
