Physics
Yeeeah. My second physics hour exam was much worse than I thought I did. Which shows that I really don't know anything beyond the basic linear crap... RMHS people - What is the physics textbook we used? And does anyone remember what happened to the answer key CD? There was a shitload of problems in that book, and the answer key's pretty good too, and I desperately need the practice. I need to get 100 on both my next hour exam, and my final. And even then, I'd still be hard pressed to pull off the A I wanted, and originally had...

This is ridiculus. And highly depressing. Combined with my iBook being dead, my iPod having it's own problems, a math hour exam that's going to whip my ass if I don't study hard enough - I'm doing, now, equally as bad there as I am in physics. And I don't know how I'm doing in ECE, but it can't be that great. And EALC hasn't been a definite A either. Am I really that stupid? Why do all of the companies ask for 3.5 GPAs? And why are there people who GET 3.5 GPAs in engineering...

It's not fair. I may have to help my friend build his killer robots.

Aww, poor kitty.

Cutnell & Johnson, 4th Edition. Unfortunately, my answer key files were lost in a hard drive purge some time ago.

Hehe, no worries 'bout the answer key files - I still have a copy of it. (speaking of which - although a bit late - do you need it? Or know anyone who needs it? Or needs the Past IB exams? 'cause I've got those)

It couldn't hurt, what with the HL exam next month and my desperate need to study.actually, I can think of a lot of people who could benefit from the archives of some IB phys archives. Could I grab it over AIM sometime?
ibneko From: ibneko Date: April 3rd, 2005 07:31 pm (UTC) (Link)
No, I don't think AIM will work too well, since I'm not going to be online much until I get my computer back, and even then, we'd have to both be online. Could I send them via http://www.yousendit.com/? And which exams do you want? I _could_ send everything I have, and let you start passing things around in a full CD or something, but unless you have broadband, it'll take you forever to download..

768 kbps :-D. I've downloaded five linux distributions in the last week.

Hit me! Send everything and I'll spread the goodness.

Five... Good heavens.

Turns out, it's much smaller than I remembered... Oddness. Eh well. It might be a lot bigger once you unzip both the outside zip file, then unzip all of the files inside... I didn't zip up most of the ones inside.. they were like that, I think, when I got them... redundancy~

Mmm, cleaning up e-mail. Did you still need those cutnell answers? I think I had assumed the "It couldn't hurt" refered to the IB, not cutnell..

at my school, the companies require 3.0, and want 3.3-3.6 think how much more fun that is for me who had a 3.96 in HS and now is struggling to meet the baseline...and its lower than yours... blargh.
ibneko From: ibneko Date: April 3rd, 2005 06:30 am (UTC) (Link)
Feh. At least you can probably reach your baseline before you graduate, if you get straight As or something. According to my calculation, and factoring in my lack-of-straight-A-getting abilities, I'm not going to be able to pull my GPA back up above 3.2.

I'm finishing my second year, with nearly a senior's amount of credits... I have a 2.8 currently yeah I bet I can geta 3.0 but I need much much better.

And I haven't gotten an A since highschool.
