I have a health class where we just took a test about drugs. And more than half of the class failed. Like with 27 percent to 60 percent. I personally got a 65. But the thing is, I genuinely did not feel prepared for this test because all the teacher did was give us 6 pages of notes that we'll have to copy down each day and talk when we're copying down, so none of us can possibly hear him and jot down the note at the same time. And then, if we get distracted for a little bit, he'll threaten us with words like, "Well, I guess you guys aren't going to copy down this whole page of notes and possibly fail your test". And I really did study for the test, I wrote rewrote down almost 20 pages of notes over and over again without a study guide or anything to determine if I was studying the things I should be. Since the teacher expects us all to memorize everything he taught within 2 months. 

 

So currently, I feel frustrated because this 65 is really not something I deserve or something anyone in my class deserves because I believe that it's not our fault that we don't even know what to study for and end up getting questions about the very little details that the teacher told us that we don't have to copy. 

 

Damn, I ranted a lot. please keep in mind that it's the teacher's second year of teaching health.

The only material you have is the notes you get from class?  There's no readings that go with it that would have the same material?

There were readings, packets that the teacher gave us but never went over, thus, I thought that it wouldn't be part of the test. But I think some of the questions were on the reading.

Everything is fair game for a test. Why would they give you the packet if they didn't intend for you to read it?

I'm not sure how old you are but if this is your first post-high-school education experience it may come as a shock to you that adult education, including nursing school, has a significant amount of independent study that you will need to do to pass your classes. There is no way the instructor can go over everything in the time allotted in class. I mean no insult by having said that...you would be surprised at how many young students come to this site absolutely flabbergasted at the difference in educational style and having difficulty making the adjustment to it.
