Hello there, I am a student who has not been successful in the past. My GPA is very low, because I have slacked off in the past. I have to get a B in my wave/optics exam on Tuesday 4/12 pacific standard time. I am not smart, and my academic intelligence is below average. My last exam I got a 55% and the class average was 79% and I studied 5 days before the exam. Now, I have two days to study. I have read the material, but am still fuzzy on the concepts. As far as practice problems, they are confusing me. I have done one practice problems and it destroyed my head. The class average is expected to be anywhere from (70% - 79%) and I am struggling and really need a B in this class and to get that B I need to ace this exam and the final. How can I ace this exam. I know the secret is holistic learning and not rote memorization. Can someone pleas give me good examples on how I can really understand the material in depth, so it just sticks with me. I want the material to be like algebra easy within the two days. Is this possible. I would appreciate a positive answer from someone who went through what I am currently going through. Please tell me the best thing I can do to ace this exam (aka the best strategy to use).
