and take it somewhere quiet, like the library or bookstore

2017-12-11 18:24:26 UTC  

that way you're in a place that's not as comfortable to you. That actually improves focus in my experience.

2017-12-11 18:25:12 UTC  

I never studied in my dorm room. I always went to the library. But all my material was printed back then (2000-2004).

2017-12-11 18:27:23 UTC  

It may be a good idea for me to print out what I can for studying purposes as well, and the 15 minute break seems good, actually

2017-12-11 18:27:43 UTC  

yeah, it's very important to take breaks.

2017-12-11 18:27:54 UTC  

going for a walk was the secret sauce for me

2017-12-11 18:29:21 UTC  

It's going to be very difficult at first not to get distracted, but that's where the checklist will help you.

2017-12-11 18:29:37 UTC  

The checklist says "This is the only thing I'm allowed to do right now."

2017-12-11 18:30:51 UTC  

I recently studied for a math test for 12 HOURS... still did not do well on the test itself. We live in a pretty cozy neighborhood, so I could go walking.

2017-12-11 18:31:05 UTC  

I really like this checklist idea actually!

2017-12-11 18:31:10 UTC  

Right, but did you really study?

2017-12-11 18:31:24 UTC  

If you're checking your phone every 10 minutes, you're just treading water.

2017-12-11 18:31:54 UTC  

(I have two STEM master's degrees, I've been in exactly the same situation 😃 )

2017-12-11 18:32:25 UTC  

quick anecdote: when I was in calculus, I "studied hard"

2017-12-11 18:35:22 UTC  

Taking notes on all of this good information, also that is impressive my dude!

2017-12-11 18:35:40 UTC  

We have a library that I can use, and maybe normie starbucks might work, too

2017-12-11 18:37:44 UTC  

I appreciate all the advice you've given mate!

2017-12-11 18:52:27 UTC  

but I didn't strive to understand what I was doing. As soon as I got a rudimentary understanding, I immediately went on to other subjects or distractions

2017-12-11 18:52:46 UTC  

needless to say, I got rekt later on in the course because I did not have the prior fundamentals down.

2017-12-11 18:53:25 UTC  

So that summer, I went back through the text. I worked graveyard at a factory, and we got a few breaks every shift.

2017-12-11 18:54:04 UTC  

So on the first break, I would very slowly and deliberately read the explanation at the beginning of the section. Then I would write down some practice problems.

2017-12-11 18:54:24 UTC  

When the line went down (which happened a lot that summer), I would pull out the practice problems and work them on the scrap cardboard

2017-12-11 18:55:07 UTC  

so that fall when I took the next course in the calc sequence, I did just fine because I took the time to get a full understanding

2017-12-11 18:55:35 UTC  

it didn't take much time, but it did take full concentration. you'll see once you eliminate distractions that concentration matters much more than time spent.

2018-01-12 04:34:59 UTC  

I would be happy to help with mathematics (calc 2 and below), also EMT-Basic and Nursing Assistant questions as well.

2018-01-24 20:59:51 UTC  

I am writing a rhetorical analysis for my writing class on this video. I need to both analyze the argument and the way the speaker presents as well as determine the credibility of the information presented

2018-01-24 21:01:23 UTC  

Note: The primary goal here is to examine rhetoric, how effectively the speaker’s ideas are communicated, not necessarily to agree or disagree with the speaker.

2018-01-24 21:02:03 UTC  

But naturally I can be contrarian and present evidence against the speaker

2018-01-24 21:03:37 UTC  

Dude runs an NGO lol

2018-01-24 21:03:58 UTC  

He's jewish too I'm weak

2018-01-25 19:13:25 UTC  

@here Anyone know anything about bond valuation ?

2018-01-25 19:13:56 UTC  

@BryceB-ND Yes! What's the question?

2018-01-25 19:14:04 UTC  

Also yes

2018-01-25 19:14:06 UTC  

If you have a floater and an inverse floater derived from your collateral, is the coupon rate of the collateral the weighted average of the floater and inverse floater?

2018-01-25 19:14:47 UTC

2018-01-25 19:15:08 UTC  

I got 8%

2018-01-25 19:15:20 UTC  

I used this "

2018-01-25 19:15:26 UTC  

I used this as my example to go off of.

2018-01-25 19:17:12 UTC  

I also want to check my work on computing the dirty and clean price as well as accrued interest of another example in case you both have an idea on that as well

2018-01-25 19:17:20 UTC  

This is a similar example.
