Depending on the major and department, but most of the time registering for classes is very unorganized. My department was organized. If you have the same major as me, the students left old notes for students to study with for tests. They are located in the study room in southwest hall!

Tennessee Tech University is a great school. The classes aren't easy, but are passable with a little hard work. The professors care about their students and want them to succeed. The advisors are more than willing to be there to help you in your degree and career choices. The campus is safe and makes you feel at home.
