the best kind of test

You know what the best kinds of tests are? The kind where your professor gives them to you before you actually have to take them so that you can know all the answers when you go take it. Its kind of amazing. I have the same teacher for 2 classes and he is foreign which is very common at UVU... so I can't completely understand what he is talking about all the time. But I go to class and I write word for word all of his power points down just to stay awake, but mainly I go to class to sign the roll. This is the style for both of his classes that he teaches. It's realy hard to pay attention and I was even more scared thinking about what his tests were going to be like because I wasn't picking up one bit of anything he was throwing out. Until he emailed us the "review" which was actually a copy of the test. When I got to go through that I actually learned a lot about the topic and it turns out that he does actually know what he is talking about. I wish all my teachers had tests like this.

I don't understand why more professors don't do it. I mean, if I memorize all the information for the test and write it down and get an A, didn't I do exactly what they were hoping for? I learned the infomration AND got a good grade. Win-win for both of us.

Well at least this teacher didn't have to clap in your face to wake you up! :) We miss you. How long is this school thing anyways?

I think that would be a dream teacher. What does she teach? How did you do on your test?

I like when teachers say things like "its easier to "BE" great on this test if you study". Yep, had a teacher do that. Miss those days

Umm I definitely need some professors like that. I had one my freshman year of college who made us all think there was a final and then we just had a party instead, it was great!
