You realize when this thread was made right?

This was my first all-nighter for studying for an exam.

I've stayed up all night before not just for exams.

It just doesn't make sense to me. This is stuff that will slide right out of their stash of knowledge 1 week from now. Why bother? Why cram? I've never studied more than around 3 or 4 hours for a test. What you do is engage the material on a class to class, reading assignment to reading assignment basis. So when test time comes all you're doing is reminding yourself of everything so it's fresh in your mind. Maybe if it's something I can't wrap my head around or care about I'll spend an hour or two with some notecards memorizing but... seldom.

Anyway, even if I saw a need I couldn't do it. I'm not one of those people who can go without sleep. My mind and body just fall apart. Even if I go consecutive nights with only like 4 hours - I'm barely functioning the next morning. It's my one physical weak spot. I just can't stay awake for long periods. It's always been this way too. I was born old.

Because I'm not memorizing things word for word. This class isnt about memorization. It is learning how to do specific problems using different cycles in gas turbines, compressors with energy, heat, entropy, mass flows, enthalpies, specific heats, ideal gases, temperature, pressure and volume. I'm sure I'm forgetting a few as well.


If my classes involved only memorization, college would be damn easy. But it's just more than memorization and that's why engineering and sciences are the hardest undergrad majors.

Hehe, you'll never stop letting everyone know how hellish our curriculum is, huh Hawker?

It's cool man, gotta show all these foes what's up.



Engineering FTW!

Did you have to take Thermodynamics? I know Civil Engineers here have to take that or principals of electrical engineering their spring semester junior year.
