i have fear and trepidation
I have an exam in my Business Systems and Policy class today, the class I complained about here
. I will be mortified if I miss a question. Given that it's a mostly objective test, I probably will...it doesn't matter how well I know the material (or how many fricking books I've written on the topic), I just don't do objective tests. I'm getting better at multiple choice, but true/false are just terrible because I can talk myself into true or false for just about anything. On a side note, whenever I get around to taking the GRE again, it'll be interesting to see if I do any better. I got terrible scores on both the SAT and GRE, years ago. Maybe now that it's computerized, I'll do better. But back to my exam...I keep going over my notes and I think "why the hell are you spending time on this?" and then I remember how much I hate looking like an idiot (which would happen if I scored poorly). Grrr.
I think I did just fine...an A of some sort. I'm sure I read too much into a few of the m/c or t/f questions and answered incorrectly, but there were essays (well, answers in bullets and diagrams, with writing) so that works for me. It was a good, challenging test that I'm sure many people failed. When I left after about 50 minutes (it's a 1.25 hour class), there were people still on question number 30, out of 45 and three essays. Not good for them. I wore my Stanford t-shirt as I always do...it makes me feel smart.
