Auditing an extra module - bad idea?

    I'm a second year and there's a module in my department that I'd like to take but I've already maxed out the credits I can take this year. Would it be a terrible idea to audit it? By audit I mean I'd just do the reading and go to lectures. I wouldn't do any of the assignments or really take notes. It's a first year module so the reading load isn't that high and it's something I'm really interested in. I think it would take up about 3 hours of my time per week including the lecture. I don't have a job either so I do have a fair bit of free time.

    Thoughts?

    Email the leader of that module and ask if you can sit in for a couple of weeks, with a view to attending the rest of the lectures. You should know within a couple of weeks whether it's doable in the way you intend. I wouldn't sacrifice reading time on your own degree, but you might well get brownie points for enthusiasm (always helpful when looking for a job reference).
