or you have me for your semester of cellular and molecular bio intro. A third of my class failed, a third dropped out from the start of the year.

Here's my hint. read the sylabus. What they say they test over is what they'll test over. If they don't, it's a contract. you got them.

For those in high school that are complaining about coloring maps- it may not be over. I've had to color maps in college. And the TAs are very anal about their maps.

You want to hear a school horror story, listen up.

When I was choosing courses for my first semesters of university, I had the chance to take an SF Writing course (my specialty). I decided not too (I'll take it next year) because it was only offered in one time slot (unlike many other courses), and I'd have to sprint from one end of campus to the other in under ten minutes.

Because of classes being shuffled around, I still had to sprint from one end of campus to the other in ten minutes.

Here's the real kicker; I found out from a friend a few weeks into classes that this semester's SF class (through random chance) is all girls. All young, single girls. Who know SF well enough to correct the teacher.

You think you guys have it bad? Try waiting for three weeks to start class. And the only things you can do are shine boots or detail for 8 hours, all the while putting up Drill Sergeants.

(I probably shouldn't be saying this since I'm still on a military installation.)

In between classes at my school, we only have 3 minutes-BUT they don't let you go to the bathroom during class. So if ya gotta go-you're pretty much ****ed.

That's why I'm at a community college wasting time and not at the Naval Academy

I always arrange my schedule so that I never have to take a final on the last day of finals.

That or beg to take them early.

I have a bad exam predicament right now. I've been off the past 3 days, so all of my books are at school. Exams start Tuesday, so I'll only have one night to study for my Tues. exams (that is unless we're off Mon., then I'm screwed). I wish they'd just cancel the stupid things....

Useless ****!

Coloring in high school and up and getting bad grades for not coloring "perfect"

****ing Useless unless you plan to be an artist.

Am I right?

Cramming never works. If you are not prepared before, you're all ready pre-doomed to fail.

Ever time I study for a test I fail it. When I don't study I get 90s on it, Figure that one out.

It gone to the extent that I'm third in my class and only study for vocab. My english teacher told me do what ever works for you. Wonder what she would say if I told her I never study for that matter my other teachers as well.

I never study either.
Personally I think it puts you in a more calm unworried state.

English?
You have to choose the correct verb based on the rules.
Screw the rules and just choose what sounds better.Worked for me.

I despise english class. We go over grammar stuff that we have been going over since second grade. I figure, if we don't learn it after 5 years, 8 years won't help either.

Will english help much when your designing new weapons for the US?



Art would help but I get all my designs printed from my PC.
Now if only I could find some Gundanium Alloy...
