Just got done with my E&M exam. I can guarantee I won't be joining my friends next quarter in E&M2. I had studied the week prior and nothing was sticking in my brain. It culminated in me looking over my returned homeworks and exams and not understanding how I got my answers. The answers that I got correct. There's also a good chance I failed QM this quarter. This class was supposed to be a lot easier for me. I understood the material and did much better on the homework. Exams still kicked my ass. For some reason the questions just blind-sided me. So, now that I failed 1, maybe 2 classes, where do I go from here? I know some of you have dropped out and came back and shot to the top, but I just can't see myself doing any better next quarter. Physics exams have been a problem for me ever since I transfered over to this school from a Community College (I took 1st year Phys, Multivariable Calc, Linear Algebra, Diff EQ's over there). Studying actually correlated to higher grades over there for me. On the tests in the physics classes here I always miss something. There's always something conceptual I seem to miss when looking at the problem. After someone tells me, it's painfully obvious, but during the test for the life of me I can't figure it out. Even in my circuits class, people who couldn't hook up a resistor to a battery to save their life would score higher than me. I just don't know what to do. To top it off, I talked to a prof I work for about grad school (should be applying next year) and he said my grades should be good. A 3.0 in this school isn't that great, he said. Yeah. I wish I was getting a 3.0.
