So basically I'm trying very hard to get an A in my "Electricity and Magnetism" also known as physics II course at my university, I do every homework problem assigned read and fully contemplate and comprehend the chapters in my book ("Physics for Future Scientists and Engineers") assigned. I go to every lecture listen attentively take notes, I even bought a book called "A Students Guide to Maxwell's Equations" to help supplement the book and get an idea of the big picture of the class, ect... The problem I'm having is that I'm not doing well. So far the first test I got an 88 and the second one I got a 78. The class averages around a 35 for both tests, and the professor has adamantly declared that there are no curves for anything. I have to do very well on the last two exams if I want an A and I'm willing to do just about whatever it takes (I already quit my job, and just deactivated my facebook to stay focused). What can I do to help improve my grades. I'm not sure how to "study" this material other than doing practice problems. What advice can you give me? Thanks in advance!
