This semester I have multi variable analysis and transformations, signals and systems. The latter one is a beast. Up until now I have done great in all my courses, this is my third of five years in computer science. I have learned how to study, and how to study harder when knowing something will be hard. This course had a fail rate of 85%, and a no lifer like me have been worrying for this course since starting last year. So when it came up I went hard from the start, getting way ahead. Going to every lecture, studying every single piece stated there and suddenly the thesis before the exam shows up. And. I. Do. Not. Understand. Anything. All that time wasted. Never experienced something like this. It is like everything in there is new.
How do you handle stuff like this? I have been so stressed I have chest pains, migraines and insomnia since this realization because I have tried to "catch up" so hard.
