    Finals

    Anyone else totally screwed this week? I have GDCB 510 tomorrow and Agron 561 on Wednesday. I am pretty much ****ed. I could study for a month and it wouldn't matter.

    I always look forward to the Finals thread at the end of every semester. Screwed would be an understatement. Acct 485 on Thursday could be the death of me.

    I'll trade places with you. I have a wife up my *** because the boys broke a shelf in their room.

    I graduate in 6 days and got a few EE exams, but I really don't care anymore.

    Re: Finals

    In my experience in engineering, excessive studying for finals is overrated. If you don't understand the key concepts by now, you're not going to. Do some basic reviewing so the subject matter is in your head, get some sleep, and take the exam.

    Re: Finals

    Do graduating seniors have to take finals? It's been a few years since I became an IE grad, but finals were optional. Talk about easy street the last week.

    I think it depends on the class/teacher. I've had some teachers that say they don't have to, but most make them I think. Not that I'm a graduating senior yet either though.

    Who is your prof? Have that class next semester.

    Accounting 387 and 384 tomorrow are going to blow, but I've figured out without taking the final, I have a C in 387 so I went from being nervous to not giving a ****.

    Re: Finals

    Somehow I only have 2 finals this semester. Most of my classes opted for a final project instead which has made this week rough, but all I have to worry about is EE448 and Stat305. Not much worry here.

    Re: Finals

    2 finals this week, and another "final" that is a series of essay questions that were given as a take-home.

    Only bummer was realizing the take-home is due tomorrow morning, not Wednesday morning. Has made for a stressful Sunday...

    Perkins, and thats the only one that is available. It sucks by the way, class average is around 50% for the two tests. Also have the 387 test to look forward to also. But yeah, already in the **** it mode.

    #1 I've heard horror stories about 485.
    #2 Which section of 387? When's your final? I get that beast tomorrow morning at 7:30.
    #3 Keep posting people. Don't want to get bothered by my accounting.

Got my poli sci 251 take home final done today, and then i have an optional final for speech wednesday or thursday whatever day if i choose to take it.
