Alright so right now I am taking an introduction to Political Science class at a local college. The teacher is extremely difficult and the class average right now is 61%. I currently am sitting at an 85%... however, that's not because of what I've recently been doing. I started out getting straight A's for the first 3 tests, but after that it's been all C's... I don't get it. I've been studying the same exact way I have been. Basically I will read the 40-50 page chapter ahead of time, take the lecture notes, and then 1 or 2 days before the test I will go through the whole chapter again and type notes up of every little fact that I think MIGHT be on the test. His tests are all multiple choice and true and false, this sounds easy... but the trick is the wording and concepts are extremely hard. For example, there was this one question: -When Vladimir Putin entered office in 2000, the main problems he had to face were Corruption and a public disregard for law. I SPECIFICALLY remembered that there was another problem, a war in Chechnya. So I marked false, because those weren't the only problems he faced, I figured if it said "some of the main problems" I would mark true. But nope, it was true because those were main probems and it doesn't necessarily mean all of the problems had to be written down. Things like that... that was just one example I remember. His tests will go over the concepts and stuff, but in addition he will throw out random questions, one time his question was: -What is the average Nigerian salary? Which he didn't ever mention in class, and he gave us 4 options, luckily I remembered it from the book but I don't always remember it. So am I doing something wrong?
