I'm an idiot, but its not my fault

I'm a big dope. I'm registered for a class, but unfortunately not the class I intended.

DeVry offers a number of programming course options. A, B and C. One of them is C++ the other is C#. Now I don't know much about the languages really, but my intent was to go to C++. Of course I stupidly requested registration for CIS170B, which is C#, the wrong language. I really wanted CIS170C. (BTW, that's pronounced see-sharp, like you're talking to a four year old about a knife's pointy end.) I hope I can fix this. Class officially starts tomorrow Oct. 29th.

Part of this confusion, albeit my own fault for making assumptions and not looking at the course descriptions as I wrote my registration request to my adviser, is the combination of my transfer credits not working out so great, my late start, financial aid (never did that before, lucky me) and the class I wanted requiring me to test out of a class. I had to go to orientation (1.5 hr waste of my time) anyway, so I took the test for Comp-100 before orientation.

Comp 100 is obviously designed for someone with less experience around computers. I had to do things like "send the e-mail" and "open my documents". It was an easy test for me. I took 20 minutes to answer the 40 questions. At least its 2 more credits toward my degree! Maybe I can test out of more?
