(Hope that's a better question!!!)
1) ABA rules requires 80% or greater attendance. Professors, even in 100 person classes, notice when people miss frequently. More to the point - avoid missing class if you want to do well. Absent a family emergency or a major illness, you should be in class. When you take a class, you are taking the professor's version of the class. It would be very, very difficult to do well without being in class. Every professor focuses on different aspects and has different takes on things. Plus, even if you somehow managed to do well, you're going to be hurting yourself - as good luck getting a recommendation from a professor whose class you chose to frequently skip.
2) If you don't like your section - suck it up. From a professor stand point - every section has a mix of rockstars and so-so professors. I think they purposely spread the wealth of quality between the sections. From a section-mate standpoint - cowboy up. Its unlikely that you will dislike all 30 people, and if that's the case, the problem is probably with you. Regardless, you will discover that in life, you often have to work with people you dislike. Its part of life.
