What was the most difficult part about your training or education?
Advice
Share a challenge you experienced in one of your classes or training courses. Maybe the class was difficult because it wasn't one of your strengths. Math and science courses might be tricky for you or maybe the professor was real challenge. Focus on what you did to overcome it, rather than placing your attention on the issue. Here is an example: "During my clinical rotations, I had a very difficult patient. Her condition was stable, but she was very demanding and needed a lot of attention. I learned how to divide my time between patients, giving each one the attention and care they needed. I also learned how to manage the stress of being pulled in so many directions. This has helped me so much as a nurse, because these situations happen every day."

"The most difficult part of my education was my Statistics course. I overcame this challenge by hiring a tutor. I ended up with a A but it was definitely the result of a lot of work and studying."
"The most difficult thing for me was the level of homework and study time required. I had always worked while going to high school, but I had to reduce my hours to make time for studying."

What was the most difficult part about your training or education?
1.
I think maths class was difficult to attend most of time.
2.
Formal logic, because the people who did the best in class had a certain level of math-nerdism that I didn't have. Numerical analysis - same thing. Database component of C# classes, because I had zero background in DBs before that (I am rectifiying that now).
3.
The least challenging. It is easy to get bored and lose interest if the course material does not draw you in and force you to give all of your effort to learn, absorb and excel.
