It's the way you word your questions ...

To all my future college students,

Saying, "It's the way you word your questions that cause me to fail your test," is not the way to endear yourself to a professor.

If you can't be bothered to study, just own up to the fact. Your professor needs the truth to make suggestions ... lies can't help us pinpoint the underlying problem.

When I have students aceing the test, while you are flunking the test ... the problem is usually pretty obvious.

AND, when I tell you to make an appointment to visit with me and go over your test ... MAKE the appointment.

Your professor in Academia

AHHH, rant over. All better.
