    It seems possible that to have 4.0's and 3.0's , that it's logical to deliberately not take teachers who don't grade fairly? (For example particular teacher who assigns homework and then all of his exams look NOTHING like the homework. )

    Sure, however a good student would get a 4.0 regardless of the teacher.

    I don't even get what's going on here. I don't think what you said is a proper sentence.

    It's perfectly possible to get 3.0-4.0 GPA....if the teacher made the exam look exactly like the questions on the homework your not learning your memorizing. It's college....not highschool

    I think the OP means that he won't take certain classes that other people say are hard or the teacher sucks... in order to get a higher GPA.

    and i don't think the prof can just pull questions out of their a**. homework ≠ exam, but theoretically you should know how to do questions similar to it because ..well, because that's the course you're in. and thats the homework you've done, the questions you've studied.
