Sorry if this topic has been visited in the past, but I'm having an extremely hard time with Intro to Mechanical Physics and it's a pretty awakening experience. I'm 99% certain I will fail the first test tommorrow and the reason I'm writing this rather than studying is because studying doesn't seem to be much help in this case. I don't think it's a lack of brains, I did well and enjoyed some pretty hard Calculus classes that many of my buddies had to retake. I've never had less than a C in a class before and so far, I'm doing well in the 1 Credit lab portion of the class as far as grades and understanding the material. Below is a list of reasons why I think I'm failing/will fail. 1. Teacher isn't very good 2. I'm lazy/burned out/tired 3. Can't find a tutor 4. Took way too many other classes 5. The textbook is TERRIBLE 6. The class moves WAY too fast Notice that none of the above reasons include 'can't make sense of physics,' which is partially true. I actually understand enough of the concepts, I just can't keep up with them and the amount of homework from my other classes. I don't hate physics either and I'll definately be using the subject in future classes. I'll plan on taking it again in the fall, hopefully the subject clicks by then. Has anybody failed Physics, or another class in this manner before? - where you go to class knowing you'll fail, knowing there's little you can do about it, and not exactly knowing why you can't cope with the material that really isn't that bad?
