Pre-Course selection does not give you much description to know what your getting into, until class starts and you get the syllabus. Courses have much breadth. Not depth. Many do not follow a path, especially for professional licensure programs. Some Professors set up curriculum as they know it, not from the perspective as a learner. The (I know it, you should know it attitude) Online courses are an extreme example of the aforementioned. You are at each course Professors mercy.
