Hello, I just need some advice. What do I do if I'm stuck with a bad prof? I was stuck with one last semester and I literally didn't learn a thing from her classes. I had to study my butt off by myself but she marked tests so extremely strict that by the end, 1/3 of the classes has dropped, more than half was failing, and the class average was 43%. This was only intro physics! I guess what made her bad was that she didn't listen to anybody and when we asked her too many questions, she said that we're "wasting her time," so people just kind of gave up. I didn't fail but did pretty bad. I'm repeating this course but I am now paranoid about getting another prof like her. They switched my good physics prof for next semester with a totally new guy, so now I'm pulling out my hair worrying how bad/good he'll be Sorry for the rant but how do you guys handle bad profs? What about profs who make midterms easy but the final extremely hard (without telling you)? My calc prof did this, his questions were harder than the hardest questions in the book and he gave us really easy "sample" finals and told us it'll be a guideline to the difficulty level of his exam. My brother said he did it to pull down the average since everyone did so well on the midterms.
