Abstract Algebra because I already hated writing proofs. Adding in Group theory made it even worse.

re: What was the worst, hardest class you had in college?
Physics w/ Calc. Was hard becaue I was stupid and listened to some jackass telling me I could take while taking calculus at the same time. So, yes, I attempted Physics w/ Calc before knowing calc.

Taught by a dude retired from MIT and his buddy retired from GaTech. Both were buddies having attended Cal Tech together. They reunited to have fun teaching this course at a community college.

3 question quizzes took us 3 hrs to complete. My average score was around 30%.

Dude setting the curve was a pizza delivery driver and drug dealer that was later convicted of torturing and murdering a guy for not paying up on some drug debts. I sat next to him in class. Used to ask him to help me after class since he was doing so well. Very happy that he told me he didn't have time "due to work".

Organic chemistry II. It sucked and the grade curve was something like a 55% or so. Passed the class somehow and still didn't know anything

That class sucked too, but only because the material was so dry it sucked all of the life energy out of you .

I heard this awful advice being peddled around a lot during my freshman year. So glad I didn’t listen.

re: What was the worst, hardest class you had in college?
Bad-hardest was Organic Chemistry because I just hated it and didn’t give a shite. Dropped it once. Took it again and went into the final 17 points above class average but still ended up with my only C in college.

Good-hardest was Biochemistry. While my friends who were at LSU were taking multiple choice tests in a large class, I was in a small class at UNO with a slave driver giving us essay tests. Had to study my arse off but was one of only a couple people who got an A in the class. When I took Biochem in dental school a year later it was a breeze and I won an award for the highest average in the class. I kept the plaque but donated the $50 to a class keg party. Also got a summer job doing the illustrations for a text book the dental school professor was writing.. It really made me appreciate that UNO professor.

As in law school torts? I mean, the answers to the hypos take forever, but all you do is essentially spot every frickup and argue against yourself for a couple hours.

It is the perfect 1L wanna be lawyer philosophical class

DId LSU offer an online class that you watched movies and did a quiz after as an arts elective?

Best class ever

Computer Science. Although my lab partner was Ali Landry. I would not have passed if it was not for her.

They curve thankfully. All it comes down to in engineering is doing better than everyone else on exams. If you get a 50 average on the exams and the rest of the class gets a 35 you will at least get a B
