    sounds like a great way to make sure you understand the material.....not.

    I realize this. Some of the other interns just spent the whole presentation sucking up and brown nosing. I'm not going to do that, not my style. I'll let my work speak for itself, which I think it should

    I hate when professors do this. When I took BBMB 221 we had a test 4 and a final both on the final day as well. As if studying for just the final sucks enough, now you have to study for both tests as well as get both done in the 2 hours.

    That's hideous. I didn't know that ever happened to anyone. What kind of major malfunction leads to that happening? Why not make the class 4 exams?


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    You have to be an idiot to not get a B or better in Acct 284 with Clem. And class is actually enjoyable with her.

    My sister is a grad assistant for that class. I have seen some of the homework/projects. There are most certainly idiots in that class.

    As others have alluded to... don't measure yourself in this class by the % you get on homework/tests/etc. It's all relative to the other students in the class and will be curved in this manner. IIRC when I took that class a 25% on exam #1 was curved up to a C-. Just brutal.

    As an engineering major, I'll agree that this was one of the easiest classes I took at Iowa State. Clem is definitely the teacher you want.

    Just have to be sure not to get Watanabe (I'm not sure on the spelling). There just aren't many days that she hasn't woken up on the wrong side of the bed.
    It also doesn't help that I have it twice a week for an hour and twenty minutes. Way too hard to stay focused on that material (for me anyway) for that long.

    Good Lord, this describes her to a T.

    Each class I kept track of how many times she dropped the eraser

    You did that too!? haha. For a long time a buddy of mine thought her hands were disgustingly wrinkly and dry (when shown under the over-head thing). Took him the longest time to realize it was just the chalk all over her hands.
    And for the love of all that is holy, don't you dare have your phone out, come late, leave early, or whisper to your neighbor, class material related or not.
