Why are engineers hated by everyone else on STEM?
I need serious answers.

Is university a ponzi scheme /sci/?

Well /sci/? Seems like unless you're a literal genius or lucky enough to make 300k starting straight after graduation, most people are stuck in an endless feedback loop that keep these parasitic establishments alive.

You can be a chemist---as a business owner. You have to raise capital and do your studying on the side.

Sure, creating a startup is hard---but you won't cuck yourself to incompetent suits who care about literally nothing but profit, and have no real mind for innovation. That's just the reality of this economy we've inherited.

do not produce deep industry related domain knowledge. Instead they produce students that are not qualified for any job in the workforce.

Great, you studied Algebraic Topology but you lack the probability/statistics and coding knowledge to become a data scientist. You don't know React,Angular, or anything remotely useful.

This means a 3-month bootcamp graduate is more qualified for a job than you are.

Do I still have time to cram for 2 exams I have tomorrow (in 15hours exactly) or should I not go and pretend I was sick?

Exams are pure theory learning/memorization:
> 1 exam in plant physiology
For which I basically have 2 big chapters left to learn: 1 in plant nutrition, 1 in plant growth
> 1 multiple choice test in Geographic information systems theory
Which covers the material for the whole semester but I'm already somewhat familiar with it, just have to review it again

What do you think? Is it feasable?

Tired of talking to undergraduates on this board.
Tired of the IQ threads.
Tired of the brainlet threads.
Tired of the HYSP threads.

This thread is about research. What is your research topic in?

There is an exam coming up this week.

The exams are notoriously difficult for this professor. Typically there are 2 midterms but professor reduced the exams to 1 and covered more material than normal.

He has 6 prior midterms posted, 3 midterm 1 and 3 midterm 2. He said our midterm will be a bit of both midterms 1 and midterms 2 from previous semesters.

I have been taking each exam as if it were the real deal and then grading myself against his rubric. After this I been analyzing every problem I missed and in some cases wait a while and reworked each problem I missed and checked against the answer again. if I missed anything again I'd make the minor corrections and analyze why I missed what I did, and reattack it a day or two later, each time learning more and more about certain tricks/seeing new patterns. After being able to do all the problems on said exam to near perfection I moved on to the next exam.

But what has discouraged me about this approach is I am seeing a lot of post online where students are simply looking at the answer to a problem and asking why the answer is what it is. They are doing it so frequently it looks like they aren't even taking the exams but looking at the problem, the solution and doing 'mental checks' that they could have came up with the solution and move to the next problem.

Is my approach good, or should I just look at the solutions to all the exam problems and memorize?

My approach is slow. I took 2 exams out of 6. The test is in 4 days (thursday).

With the approach my clasmates are taking I could look at all 6 exams in a day since I'd just be looking at solutions.

BUT I feel like these problems are so tricky you could easily fool yourself into thinking you know how to do the problem since you 'see' the tricks in the solution without thought, then bomb the real exam.

How many hours of studying do you put into preparing for an exam ?

I just got a 46% at a Plant physiology exam for which I studied 24 hours total over the course of 5 days prior to the exam.
I'm just trying to analyze and find out how I got that shitty grade when my peers got 70s and 80s.
Am I actually a brainlet or I just didn't study enough for that particular course? Or maybe my studying method is not effective
I need to find out what it is and correct it for the remaining half of the semester
