I'm taking an E/M II class this semester and this class is well known for how fast the class moves.

The professor literally crams 2 hours worth of materials in 50 minutes. The information flow rate is insane just like drinking from a proverbial firehose. Sometime she'd like to skip 5-6 steps of derivations because she assumes that "it's too trivial" to show that explicitly. She thinks the students can derive the whole process on the fly in their heads.

There is always a 15-20 minutes quiz in the class and I'm slow to get things done compared to my peers. It is like forever for me to download and make sense of the flowing information in my brain and stay calm. I really can't focus on the work when I'm too excited.

But after all ,I realize

How can I learn to be a faster learner and stay calm in such situation?

**. It's my job to adapt to the speed and learn how to solve complex thing in a limited time.I have to take charge of that stoically because there is always something that is out of my control.**__it's not her fault__How can I learn to be a faster learner and stay calm in such situation?
