I hope you earned those A's. I can study 30-40 hours for a normal engineering/programming exam, and be lucky to come off with a C. I forgot what an A felt like a long time ago, and I'm sick of the people around me who can study the night before the thing and make an A/B on a piss-hard exam. I can't get a break, my life sucks, sometimes I just wish it would end. Glad somebody is happy though... Jewbroni~

Fan-freakin'-tastic! Congrats buddy. Don't worry 'bout those other three things. Once you graduate with that kind of GPA they will come. Jewbroni, don't let it get you down. My sister used to work her ass off to get A's and B's while I screwed around and got A's. I looked at the material the night before and it was there. Now, some twenty plus years later, she remebmers the junk she actually studied....while I don't remember jack. Imbrog|io, at least we love you bro.

Let me give you some advice, fom the all natural, Ninja man himself. When you study, read or try to remember something, become sexual aroused with every word that gets read in your head. The more you read the more sexually aroused you should become. When it gets to the point where you are panting while reading "See Dick run, run Dick run" this is the time not for release, my good friend, but a little of what I call S&M. Study while Masturbating. How can you forget Dick's last name, when he was born, or what he did in life when just last night you had this incredible Dick induced Orgasm. It works! Now So F

And if you didn;t have such a damn good sense of humor about it, i'd make that picture appear on every thread on every post on every board on the internet. (BTW: That pic really is me)

Let me put it in other terms. -I'm in a class I've taken twice before. -I dont "party too much" like Uzi; my head is usually in a book at least 6 hours a day, more on test weeks. -I'm surrounded by people who are getting good grades, studying as hard as I am. -My GPA is a 2.4, and I devote all my time to school. When I'm taking a break, I'm usually here on AR15.com. -If I don't pass the class this time around, I need to get out of my major. That bumps me back to a Sophomore credit-wise. I.E., I'm looking at just wasting two years of school. In other words, I don't work, work, work for A's and B's. I do it for C's and D's. Now you see the plight of the Jew....
Link Posted: 4/29/2001 12:34:40 AM EDT
Hang in there, JB I had about the same trouble. Missed out on lots of partying in order to scrape through. Well I did meet a GF which gave me plenty of distractions my last 2 years. The last couple of year were really tough because I wound up having to take half my upper level classes in the evening - they were only offered then. I'm still not sure how I managed, but I can tell you I found out that some of those people who seemed to absorb it instantly were cheating. Keep on plugging away and graduate with your honor intact.

ROTFLMAO! That was funny times 2. Also congrats on your A's, I hope you keep them. I love my online classes, I can work any hours I want. Jewbroni, good lock with your class, what ever it may be. I have yet to take a really horrible class, but I'm betting that accounting will have me screaming. McUZI, that pic has me just hooting with laughter every time I see it. NSFjojo, you're one sick, sad little man. You deserve that picture, you dog, you. And why did this post resurrect itself? It's ancient! I'm 2/3 of the way through with marketing 111 right now. Thanks again.

Good for you Juggernaut! I haven't had an "A" in a while, had a good number of "B"'s in Grad school, (well, if I didn't they would kick me out) I'm happy for you. As for me, either I'll finish this semester, or fail out. Eight days to go...
Link Posted: 4/29/2001 11:25:36 PM EDT
Congrats Juggernaut! Keep up the good work and you'll get the last three items you desire, if not more. For all you young studs griping about your GPA you have to understand sometimes it's out of your control. For instance, once in a while you get a real jerk of a professor. You know the type. First day of class he/she declares, "No student has ever received a grade higher than B in my class!" I had a guy like that once. Turned in A quality work every time but received a B. Then sometimes the load is so heavy no normal human being can do better than a C. Physics with calculus in the same semester as C++ programming comes to mind. In any case, C+ to B in some engineering majors is considered top notch. And you can get so tied up with your studies you forget college is also for networking. In the end, focusing on the latter can be more beneficial than squeezing out an extra .25 in GPA (unless you need it to get into grad school).

Good job,Jugg,I graduated college about 1 year ago and got all A's.I got my certification in three things; Certified Alarm Installer,Certified CCTV Tech.,Certified CCTV Installer. Hey,Mcsuzie,I got those same gloves,and knife. I use the gloves for paintballing and airsoft,saves the fingers.

Maybe you already know this, 007, but that picture McUzi keeps posting is a picture of NSFJojo. I was at the ground floor and had "front row seats" to pretty much the exact time when the postings occurred when McUzi stole/abused/overkilled/mass produced/ebay failure NSFJojo's Ninja picture. That picture has been posted around the Internet. Ha ha ha LOL! [:D] [:D] -RoadDog

Link Posted: 5/1/2001 7:09:50 AM EDT
and one more thing JB-I had the same trouble in school until i got rid of the distractions and lack of interest. I still lacked interest in some of the classes I had to take more recently, but paid attention in class and listened to what the prof had to say and took notes-I did not read ANY of the 3 books we had to buy for the class (history) just LISTEN AND TAKE NOTES! You will find that the act of just writing the crap down somehow makes you remember it better. I usually just studied over the notes I took an hour before the class. I don't remember long term too hot, but I got the grades!

I'll second that. I got good grades (finished with a 3.4 GPA overall, 3.7 in core classes) SIMPLY by listening in class and FURIOUSLY taking notes. (this also aides in staying awake in class) I'd review my notes a day or two before the exam. Frequently, the night before the exam, I'd be in the gym playing basketball. [:D] here's a test taking hint - On multiple choice tests you can USUALLY eliminate two possible answers SIMPLY by reading the wording carefully. That gives you a 50/50 shot. At that point, take the MORE likely of the two, based on what you do know. And lastly, when in doubt, always choose "C" on multiple choice quizzes. [:D]
