Absolute Zero: The Engineering-Exam-Study Curve

The supercram curve actually helped me sail through engineering studies.
It helped all of us, K!

By the way, I admit that I had 'mugged' up few of the M2, M3 (Advance Mathematics) problem solving methods. Once I mugged up the steps, it became so easy to solve them that I just had to slip-in the numbers in equations and arrive at the answer. It needed no brain; except for entering correct numbers in calculator.

chuckofalltrades - I'd really love to see Absolute Zero taking us back to the 'First Day In Engineering College' ...and of course, the Farewell Day! πŸ‘.

so very true! 😁 😁 the last 1.5 hours where the whole class sits together trying to study atleast three questions per minute is all that helped me in the exams πŸ˜‰

Well I thought I had missed one region all these days πŸ˜” , (sleep) 😴 getting into saturation region at restarting point and (wake up) picking up from that panic inflection region. 😨

but Thanks to supercram curve that saved me every time. It rocks (cannot forget those moments of all siting together). No one even allows a breathe to interrupt at that moment. 😁

😁 I am in the slow and steady curve till the supercram occurs.

Times flies by just like that.. 😲
I Hope , we engineers have the ability to complete 100% of the portion, but are able to manage only 70% of it to assimilate itπŸ˜‰

I always stands b/w in the mugging and panic region. 😁😁 Just mug all the things and till exam stay in panic and finally vomit it out whatever I had studied.

Has anyone on CE mugged up Math problems? 😁
Mine is also the supercam only!!! πŸ˜€

If it is not comic for entertainment, I disagree with Chuck. Steady learning helps increase our understanding. It is important. We cannot go on like a superman/ woman studying in last 1.5 hours. It is not practical. The degree made up in this way is of no use. Marks cannot materialize in your brain as knowledge.

I never tried doing anything at last moment. But before you get me wrong, I have never scored very good marks. I always pass GRACEfully. πŸ˜‰

Good attempt at comic chuck. I liked it πŸ˜€

Nah, understanding is important πŸ˜€ Luck does not bless those with poor memory 😁

I have done for Probability and Queuing Theory and they asked the same question, yeah, it was a bulls eye!!! πŸ˜€

I'll start off by first saying Great Comic, you can earn a living with this stuff. I am serious. If you put this stuff in science magazines Engineers would love it. We are all the same 😎
I would encourage you to give this a shot.
Now, this used to be my strategy in the first and second years, but in my 3rd and 4th yrs this strategy was not taking me where i wanted to be. I agree with Issue on this. But thats a discussion for another time/thread πŸ˜€

Thank you so much! Well, part of my living IS earned through stuff like this πŸ˜€
And keep discussing... I'm making notes for future comics πŸ˜›

1.5 hours before college exams, I used to be in my long bus journey to college.
We tried to study sitting and standing in the heavy crowd, all the while fighting with bus conductors - an experience which will require an entire comic of its own πŸ˜‰

I haven't.. but from primary classes to engineering I used to 'read through' maths notes 😁. I never used textbooks, and almost never practiced a problem on paper (But it wasn't exactly mugging either)

Ya in my college there was a guy who start studying maths 1.5 hours before exam and just mug all the problem. And believe me he always got good marks.Don't know how it happened but it is true.

You are from Chennai and if the university is Anna University, then no doubt. All the questions for all the subjects will be repeated without changing even the single comma position! πŸ˜€ That's the secret of his success! πŸ˜›

Hey I am not from Chennai,I am from Delhi and unfortunately working in Chennai.And I am not from Anna university also. 😁 I think you was there for a long that's why you know so much about their curriculum. πŸ˜› πŸ˜›

this curve became true for me whenever i prepared for engineering metallurgy.

but however it wasnt true when it came to preparation of hydraulics and pneumatics and power plant engineering

Slow and steady region : Everything learnt remain right there in the head even after exams.
Restart point : A big stupidity every student makes 😁
Mugging inertia zone : Feels guilty of memorising things instead of understanding. Tries hard not to mug up.
Panic Inflection : sweat sweat sweat 😑
Super Cram : Feels proud of the self for completing so much in the least time. Only 60% of what learnt, remains after exams 😁

And there is atleast one person in the class to whom the graph doesn't hold good πŸ˜›

For the records sake, I'd close down all the books 2 hours before the exam no matter how unprepared I was 😎.

And that's the reason now you are the CEO!!! πŸ˜€
Every engineering student must heard "One day batting" thats what we do.

I used to mug up C programs in my 1st year. The factorial, Fibonacci etc πŸ˜€
Dont forget... This is how we study and give exams!!!

Yes.it helped everyone of us.

Ultra crammers and Geek hours are now a trend

Some study and tell the whole thing as stories to listeners who hear three people saying three different answer

In the end the mess all the three up

But guess what they top the class😁😁😁😁
