Should I always listen to my advisor?

Advisors- Always Get a Second Opinion

While they are a useful resource, academic advisors will sometimes communicate things that aren't accurate. My advisor, for instance, told me that it would be perfectly fine to take an Art History II class before an Art History I class, but on the first day I was completely lost. I asked my professor why my advisor would think it was fine for me to take this class. He said due to "miscommunications" between departments, advisors can make these mistakes. Just be a little wary of singular advice and don't be afraid to ask more than one person the same questions.
