As soon as I completed the exam my body started having flu-like symptoms. My carrot cake with room temperature cream cheese icing felt like eating nothing special instead of an award for work well done. Clearly I was holding a lot of tension around the quiz.
Now I have a clue about how to study for this class. Reading every single page and working every example doesn't seem to be necessary. But it was good to get a strong foundation for the rest of the semester.
I have one hour before class starts tonight and I receive my next reading and homework assignment. Altoids please.
