So, here I am - it's 3:42 in the morning and I'm doing Laplace transforms. Kinda gettin' the hold of it, though - any tricks you'd recommend?

And when the hell am I supposed to use Taylor's polynome/series? What do I achieve by them and for what do I have to use it?

I have the exam in less than 6 hours. Had a few cups of coffe and a beer. No time to sleep, however - I need to get 9 points out of 24 from this exam in order to pass the course, and I really need to do that in order to keep getting study support money. The bad thing is, I just started to study this part of our maths course...Cursed integrals and differential equations! Must I really remember stuff like Taylor's series for e^x (well that one is easy) and Simpson's Law??

AAAAAGh the coffeine starts to kick in. Must. Study.

Why is Family guy so attractive? I mean, it's not actually funny (lots of American-inside-jokes) but it's helluva entertaining. That and occasional slide to YouTube's And1 clips + Facebook.

Or, if you need to use your computer for studying, unplug your network cable if it's within reach. If not, disable it through network connections.

The irony in me telling someone else how to prevent procrastination while studying is incredible, since I should be (you guessed it) studying.

Just had the exam. Failed miserably. Hopefully I'll come up with a good story so they won't cut my support.

Family Guy really isn't a good show. It's jokes are too random (not MP random), it doesnt have any storywriting to speak of, and it's animation is pretty damn ugly too (not cool-ugly, like South Park)

No it isn't. Americans have produced good humour, like early Simpsons, or the glorious South Park, but Familgy Guy isn't funny anymore. Maybe I just grew out of their funnyness. Politically incorrect jokes must be executed properly.

Family Guy is funny because it takes the pee out of Famous people and random flashbacks.

Simpsons is funny because it takes the pee out of Americans

Somehow I've done well in several classes using Laplace transforms and Taylor Series, even though I still don't really understand them. I do sympathize with your position, though.

Yeah, maybe I'll understand them better when I do PRACTICAL CALCULATIONS. Go have intercourse with all this theoretic bull's poo. Just failed physics exam too. =/

I've noticed that if I'd spend half the time in university I spent on high school, I'd have no trouble passing the grades. Computers are dangerous, man! You can sit in front of this box for ten hours a day and not achieve anything. And then there's always this weird psycological rule that "no homework on hangover days".

I just wish I could change my life and get on track...I think the main difficulty is that if I study hard on weekdays, and work on weekends, when will I have time for myself to refresh? Oh well, no one knows what the future holds. =/

I had the exact same problem. So I quit and have been working now for a while to see if my motivation comes back and it really has. Perhaps you need a break?

I know that feeling.

As far as I remember, Taylor series are an approximation of a integral (or was it derivative). I am rusty, haven't had any calculus since second year (in my last year right now).

I also like how I am not the only one who calculates the bare minimum needed to pass.

I don't know about the break; I got accepted to the Uni July 2007, began "studying" on September and then paused my studies for 6 months because of the Army. During the army I was very motivated about studying (what a surprise), and during the first weeks of school this year I attended classes and did my homework. However, because of my job on weekends I partied during the weekdays and consequently got lost in my studies (remember the hangover rule). All my friends who had started at the same time had already passed the courses I'm reattending, and I didn't know that many freshmen, so I couldn't get much help to get back on track in the courses. Now, learning my lesson, I think I'll change my ways after the Christmas break... If I won't attend the lectures, I'll study them at home, and try to keep up with the others. I just wish I'll find the self-discipline to achieve it. (It's kind of hard to be an atheist/agnostic, sometimes)

I don't understand people that do what you did, Surge.

Just do some revision at an appropriate time. Then get sleep. Then do the exam and pass.

Done.
