That calculus midterm was much trickier than I’d expected. Damn. I studied so hard for that exam, too. I’ve been studying for it since the first day of class. (And if you want to get technical, I’ve been studying for it since the first day of the summer when I started taking my pre-calc class and auditing MATH31A. The exams in that MATH31A summer term class were much more straight-forward. Ack, I wish I could have taken one of those today instead of this one.)
Shit. My TA, Jukka, made the point that no one finished early and got up and walked out, like you usually see (except my friend, Al. Grrr), so that’s a pretty good indication that no one thought that was easy.
Now, I see that I need to really study HOW Professor Watson tests. The text exercises and the quizzes are pretty straightforward, but the exam was more circuitous.
ANYWAY, can’t do anything about it now (except try to ACE midterm2 and the final to get the proper grade). Have to give over-due attention to my ART HIST54 paper and studying for that midterm.
