THe last few weeks have been disheartening...I study like mad and I do all of the work that is assigned in my physics class. I read the chapter and glance over it at least once before the test. The homework alone takes forever(not just for me, but everyone else as well). The teacher tries to be helpful with a "message board"; however, it seems VERY ineffective because he literly refused to help as far as guideance and many times tells me the obvious. The issue is not really the problems. I seem to do decently on all the numerical problems, but when it comes to conceptual questions...ARGH I guess it might be the way the tests are written but they always trick me and I seem to miss most conceptual questions. I just don't seem to have any faith anymore. I thought that Engineering might be my thing because I am interested and I like learning all the components of things but getting D's and C's on tests when I study 6+ hours makes me feel like crap. If I study that much for any other class, I am literally guaranteed an A. I just don't know what approach to take. I've never had such an issue. Anyone have any ideas on how I can improve my scores or what I can do to "get" the conceptual questions? PS: This is thermodynamics.
