Well that sucks. My Spanish teacher makes tests that even someone living in Spain couldn't pass...
I had a biology teacher that made us make a "mind map" of all the subjects we had covered in the semester to "link them together and relate them to our lives." After spending about 15 hours on the project and turning it in, hoping it would bring my grade up from a B+, he tells us that he isn't actually going to grade them. Needless to say, nobody likes him or his class.
Exactly, I have a history professor who bases his entire class off of his lectures but he doesn't use power points or anything of that matter. All he does is talk and you have to write at the speed he talks, which is extremely difficult to do. Yet he still wonders why the majority of his class is getting C's or D's
27 - That's actually a very common way for professors to do lectures. I've had several classes where the professors were like that, and I passed with flying colours, and the average was 70-80. It's not difficult to take notes from a prof who does that, unless of course you're a first-year and you're used to being held by the hand through every sentence on a PowerPoint from highschool.
Not everyone can learn that way, though, 29. I like to actually absorb what someone is telling me so that when I go back to read over my notes later, I'm helping push the information into my long term memory bank. And, also, I want to comprehend what the hell I just learned because if I sat through an hour plus of someone talking, I hope at least I could gain something out of it.
I also forgot to mention that I've been in college for two years and it will be my third year soon. So if the majority of my lectures were like this and I've passed them with an A or B and this is my first lecture where it will be a C then I'm definitely sure it's my professors fault. I've tried all I can but he just gives really bad lectures.
Hey guys! OP here! i realized that i forgot a detail. So usually, for our AP Literature exams, we get copies of practice AP exams from previous years (you know, the AP Exams at the end of the year). So for those, you literally CANNOT study. Like, there is no way to study for them since they cover practically anything and everything related to Literature.
