This is my 2nd time through and right now I'm at about a 59% for the quarter with just the final exam to go. Final grades are given in a tiered basis, where they've already decided ahead of time approximately what percentages of the class of around 1200 people will receive each grade and then stick you into those grade categories based on how you compare with the rest of the class ( something like 20% get A's, 20% get B's, 20% get C's, etc. ). Class average on the previous exam was a 60% so I figure I'm still in the hunt to receive a C at least, lol. Still... this whole setup feels like a lousy way to evaluate a student's ability in math. And these math courses have completely destroyed my GPA (no freshman forgiveness for me since I'm a sophomore transfer student).
Being 31, I get really tired of these math classes holding me back. All my required programming classes after the intro course (which I took a couple quarters ago) have calculus as a pre-requisite :-(
