I work at a cram school in Asia and my boss has a lot of stupid rules. In each room of the cram school, there are adaptors that fit our different laptops so that we can project the lessons that we are teaching. Since my workplace didn't supply us with work laptops and standardised everything, they have had to buy different kinds of adaptors that will enable us to project the lessons. (I'm salty about not being given a work laptop, but that's not the point of this story.)
Anyway, some of my colleagues cannot be responsible for the adaptors they have borrowed, and so adaptors have gone missing. To fight this, my bosses have implemented the rule that no one can take the adaptors from each branch of the centre. They have also labelled them so that they know which centre each adaptor is supposed to be at.
Normally, this rule is fine, but one day, I had to go to another branch (Branch B) to teach a class since a teacher had called in sick. Branch B does not have the adaptor that will enable me to project onto the screen, since I am using a Macbook. Since I am not allowed to bring the adaptor from the centre that I work at, Centre A, I simply did not grab it from Centre A before I left work the previous day, and made my way to Centre B in the morning to let this scenario unfold.
In the morning of my class, I texted my boss that Branch B does not have a compatible adaptor with my Macbook Air, and that I couldn't project the lessons onto the screen. The class starts, the students come in, and I have to tell them that I cannot project the lesson onto the screen. We waste a few minutes of precious time and my boss has to come into Branch B in her pyjamas and her un-made up face to hand me a compatible adaptor.
I enjoyed seeing the haggard look on her face because this is the consequence of her inflexibility. The kids and I also got to slack off for a bit before starting class, making it a win for all of us.
Two players are having a baby, we are only going to have time to play 6 sessions (4 hour sessions) is it possible to play that fast, they aren't the most Into roll play group, going to start with death house and do milestone levels
The fact that Cram Session isn't dual class makes zero sense to me and by all accounts it should be, and it being so would enable a genuinely viable deck.
Primordial Studies digs for a spell damage minion, and it's dual class. Pheonix is also dual class, makes sense. Shaman has Runedagger, Molten Blast, and plenty of burn but also no card draw. So why on Earth is it that, with Darkmoon Races actually pushing this synergy, is Cram Session not a card for Shaman? Everything is set up for it to be there but it's just not and worse yet all the payoff is near useless; why play Runedagger or Molten Blast at all when there are non-payoff equivalents like Serpentshrine and Whack-a-Gnoll?
If they made the card dual class today we'd see the class have an actual identity at least, even if it's not a great one or if the deck is just "fine" but we'd have something. Right now I have no idea why Shaman is even a class, especially considering Mage is laughing it's way to the bank with all of the tools Shaman already has but better.
Can somebody present a reason as to why this isn't the case?
You've probably been there before.
It's the day before an exam, and you have to pack all this information inside your head in a short amount of time.
Yes, I am talking about cramming! Cramming is when a person tries to store a large amount of information in their head in a short amount of time.
Sometimes it might not work, due to factors like stress or not being able to comprehend the subject matter enough. However, there is a way to properly cram information that is both healthy and not done hastily. Here's how it's done.
Before reading the steps that I have outlined below, there are some things to keep in mind. First, I am talking about cramming as a concept; the application of cramming in each course is different, but the general idea can be summarized in two rules; namely, (1) study the concepts first, memorize the details second, and (2) time proximity is important.
Step 1: Plan out when you'll be cramming
Going back to rule #2, it is important that the time between you finishing your cramming and the beginning of the exam is as close as possible. If it is possible, do the majority of the cramming about 15-30 minutes before the test starts. That way, all the details are as fresh in your mind as possible, and thus a minimal chance of you forgetting anything.
Step 2: Assess how well you currently understand the information that you are trying to cram
As this article has stated, there is a difference recognition and recall. Recall is simply remembering certain details without understanding it (i.e. learning the quadratic formula without actually understanding it), whereas recognition is like understanding how the quadratic formula actually works. One of the reasons cramming doesn't work is that sometimes, testing asks you to conceptually explain something, whereas you only know that something as information that you don't really understand. Combatting this cramming weakness brings us to step 3.
**Step 3: Learn only the base concepts, and
I have no IT experience. I’m just going to read Gibson’s Sec 501+ book and do a bunch of practice exams.
Title sums it up. Anyone got some good resources to recommend for cramming for APUSH?
Why would anyone use HE? Frag has Armour piercing and about the same, if not more damage. Between the 2, I always put more frag if it’s not entirely frag. Is there something I’m missing out on with HE? I don’t see the point in using HE.
context: i have my ap world history exam in a few days and ap biology next week.
due to virtual learning, my dumbass basically bs’d the entire class because why tf not. the consequences: i have to learn everything in a few days AND deal with my other schoolwork☹️
i swear i’m not a bad student and i really want to do well, like i really really want to.
does anyone have any advice? ap test or general study related?
So basically i cant get things to connect right so can someone explain to me how to do diamond pattern pls? I cant find a single vid/image that explains diamond pattern and how to replicate it any and all help is appreciated :)
What's the best way to make APHE cram for hard targets? How do I deal with the fact that CRAM can't get above 40 AP? This is to fight the SS in AOTE so I'm facing 50-70 AC.
One of my friends just shared this 4 minute video on Facebook where this guy (born in 91) was totally acting out everything about how day to day life was, lots of Blockbuster and old school internet and CD walkmen, don't get me wrong all that stuff is dope too. But it just sums up how annoying it is that the grunge era 1991-96 so often gets left out.
I understand if this guy is probably hazy on it since he was really little and probably only connects with 97-99 but it's not just him, I've seen this a lot. 90s nostalgia that only focuses on the mainstream kid friendly stuff from 1998 or 99 or the very early 00s holdovers.
So much from the earlier 90s was so groundbreaking that it was prevalent for years afterwards so I don't get why it's left out all the time. I was a tomboy listening to Nirvana and Chili Peppers and early Green Day when I was 8-12 and even though I thought BSB and NSYNC were hot (obviously Justin lol) I thought the music was lame. I used to get literally offended if someone thought I was a Britney Spears fan when I was 12.
People can like or not like what they want, but like don't be calling it 90s nostalgia, call it LATE 90s or Y2K era, because just saying 90s makes me think you're gonna give a shit about 94 or something.
What are the pros and cons?
What are some qualities they should have?
When I think of a cram bomber I think of a fast, maneuverable low flying plane completely shredding the top of an enemy, is this accurate?
I do plan to make on in the future so give as much advice as you can!
One of my favorite (few of them lol) Roger moments. Actually more of a Jocasta moment really. When Roger refuses her money to get estate and says Jemmy doesn’t want it either, it makes me laugh so hard her reaction. Side note: I love Jocasta because though she has all of this money and stature, she loves to be told like it is; from Roger, Murtagh, Jamie, etc. She values Roger’s strength here.
“As you hoped Mistress?”
If I understood the policies for this semester correctly, we will be given an INC if we fail to submit all the requirements of the course before the submission of grades provided that we have met at least the passing grade for the said course.
If this is correct, should I settle for INC and work on my remaining requirements diligently after the grade submission deadline? Or would cramming my work be better in this case, just to be able to get a numerical grade on June 26th?
I really don't want to cram my work and submit lackluster outputs just for the sake of "getting things done" while sacrificing the genuine learning process due to it. However, I still raised this here to get some insight from you guys in case I have the wrong perspective on this one. Sending huge thanks to those who will share their opinions and thoughts! :D
Edit: details, clarity
Hello! here is the study guide I edited and compiled from various sources for APUSH. It took me most of the day to edit this and splice it all together, but it was worth it and I enjoyed revisiting the eras of History!
Please feel free to study and I hope we all do well in our classes!
Thank you and take care!!
I’ve watched Professor Messer’s videos as well as Mike Meyers’ and Jason Dion’s videos on Udemy, I’ve read through the Cram Exam 6th edition book, but I just don’t feel like I’m getting all the information I need to complete the test.
Is there a resource I can use that removes all of the fluff and really lists in black and white everything I need to memorize and know for the test? Something I can read over and over and over again?
Hello Guys! Hopefully, everyone is doing great and doing their last-minute study sessions before the AP exam..it might be too late but I wanted to offer some help to those who are planning on taking the class or just want some notes to look over.
I spent some time writing these notesto just use it one day so why not share it yk?
(thanks to fiveable for their 5-hour cram session.that's where i got most of my information)
