Well I guess I'm somewhat to blame. Let's be honest here, I wasn't taking either class too, too seriously. Sociology has always been in my eyes soft Psychology so I don't respect it as much as I should. If there are any Sociologists reading my blog, I apologize. A little.
But asides from the assigned readings, notes in class I thought I'd be safe for it. I get the general idea of what the course is about.
NOPE. HERE ARE SOME QUESTIONS ON RANDOM STATISTICS WE MENTIONED ONCE IN CLASS.
Oh, and here's some questions and specific things mentioned only once in this paper we didn't talk about in class.
Ok fine, Linguistics. Round 2. Maybe it'll go better. You know, especially since he has practice exams and exercises for us online to do. Also, he told us in class that the midterm would be like the practice stuff.
So I go about doing these. No problem for most. Basically fill-in-the-blank, some multiple choice, translate a few things. He said there'd be some short answer but not too much otherwise.
3/4 OF THE EXAM IS SHORT ANSWER. HALF OF THAT IS DEFINITIONS. FORMAT BARELY LIKE THE PRACTICE.
Luckily I can still redeem myself for these courses. What with papers and/or secondary midterms in the near future.
Still, that doesn't make me feel any better with regards to the midterms already done. I apologize for not visiting everyone this week but it's likely to happen again. And when it does, know that I'm actually working hard and not passed out in some corner.
