For me, it would be calculus. I skated through the class (barely) and really never "got" it.

No wish to retake any of them.

Being retired may have some impact on that.

MJB, perhaps it's something you'd like to do on your own, through either independent study or an on-line course.

Chemistry:

I passed all the tests by memorizing formulas, but understood nothing about the subject.

Perhaps, but it wouldn't be a retake. It would be something new. Perhaps music. I have no formal training. :o)

Physics. My HS teacher was awesome but I really wasn't into working hard in school, and did not realize how much I learned from him until much later in college. I owe him, and I regret not taking it, and him, more seriously. Thank you Mr. White!!

My BS is Mechanical Engineering so I eventually got serious. :)

Calculus for me too I think. I was a pretty smart kid and got a good grade in the class along with a passing AP score so I didn't have to take it in college, but I fudged all my homework and didn't retain much of it.

If I could revisit college I'd probably do a lot differently, at least in terms of taking classes.

Photography. Took a year of it in 12th grade and I met my first serious girlfriend in it. That was a good year (well, until she broke up with me and went to college in Boston while I stayed behind).

I should probably have paid more attention to my Spanish lessons during my Senior year, as I ended up living in South Florida for many years.

My entire second semester of my freshman year. The "I don't need college, I'm going to be a famous musician" period.

Had I focused more on classes than recreational activities, I might've gone to medical school instead of law school.

I wish I had taken jazz/band class, which at the time seemed geeky. Those nerds got to jam with some old guy by the name of Maynard Ferguson. :-/

Biology... Teacher showed us human specimens from the lab at McGill University.

Saw human lungs - a smoker’s lungs with a huge section carved out where doctors removed a zone of cancer.

They were black and looked like pavement from the smoke.

For sure, I was never going to smoke.

She also showed us a human brain wrapped in some sort of cheese cloth. At the end of class, she let those who wanted to do so, hold the brain. I have held a human brain in my two outstretched hands. This moved me forever. I held everything about a man’s life in my hands.

Recently, I have gone through several courses about the brain, starting with Neurology with Dr. Jeanette Norden. Amazing course available through Great Courses - The Teaching Company.

I had studied these topics in University, but what I learned in these recent courses is amazing.

For example: Autism - not vaccines, not drugs... but alcohol.

Take notice... when I tell people about this, their first reaction is total denial.

Like the myth about we use only 10% of our brain. Nothing could be further from the truth.
