Just had our midterms in semiconductors earlier. So far it's the hardest exam I've taken, even if it is an open cheat-sheet exam. There was just so much topic to cover that I haven't mastered the lessons. I think I did really bad in that exam. I used a photocopied cheat-sheet of my friend, (One that is actually complete), and there are some topics I'm learning for the first time! during the exam! haha
I'm running on less than 3 hours of sleep and a mouthful of energy drink (don't wanna finish the whole bottle ) for around 15 hours now. It's also a first. For some reason I don't feel like myself. It's like I don't care about anything around me and feel really focused on what I'm doing. It's kinda like the feeling you get when you don't sleep, minus the sleepy part.

I went through that too Lightwate. I was in a bad habit of procrastinating project deadlines or exam dates, and then cramming all of it the nights before by doing allnighters. I eventually realized it does not work as well. I got more disciplined, planned my studies in advance, and got to be more relaxed too. The all nighters are really killers for mind and mood. Now and then I did produce something really good, but the cumulative effect of mind fog was not as good.

Strange thing about cheat sheet test. If you take the time to make the sheet, when taking the exam you then seldom look at your sheet. An interesting approach to making someone study.
