Yea the whole test was dumb and stupid.
It was pointless.
The only use it gave me was to give me an A in the course and raise my GPA.
My professor is very old. He teaches computer science like it was taught in his day. So we do these very mundane not very stimulating tasks in a repetitive motion.
Some people learn in this way. Some don't.
All becaue you don't get anything out of it, doesn't mean i don't.
I learned the whole course in 1 day. Took the final exam. Got an A in the course.
He didn't cover a single complicated aspect of any of these concepts.
The only relatively difficult part of the exam was the following.
"On as hash table, you have a mapping function defined as the following"
y = math.abs(math.floor(x));
then he gave some numbers.
Then we had to place it appropriately in 2 conditions of a hash table.
If you skipped all the bonus questions on the exam. That was your hardest task.
My university has tons of students who don't work for anything.
Me and one other student, were the only ones who knew the answer to the above equation.
This is not a freshman level course btw.
