    That is really cool Emale. It is a good summary of what I have learned over the past 5 years.

    Studying what interests you is really important. It makes all the difference.

      Hmm my usual rules (below) seem to match up nicely I think. :)

      Rule 1: Don't cheat.
      Rule 2: See Rule 1.
      Rule 3: Be honest.
      Rule 4: Help others where and when you can!
      Rule 5: Don't be an asshat. Congratulate the other classmates on a job well done!
      Rule 6: Study hard. Play hard. (Unless you have a photographic memory of some sorts...even then you'd have to study eventually for something.)
      Rule 7: Go to class. Skip/miss if you are really sick. You don't want to infect the rest of your class.
      Rule 8: Ask, discuss, talk, ask some more. Memorizing only goes so far, but you learn more when you ask questions and discuss intelligently with others.
      Rule 9: Try not to argue, doesn't really get you anywhere. There's a time and place for that and usually that's not in a classroom during class.

          What? I hope not! If those kids believe you...oh man...

          Since you're a professor E-Male, I do have a question:


          Since your video mentions using a Sharpie/highlighter, I have a related question:

          Have ebooks become accepted at your university? How often do you see students reading course material (or even reading for fun materials) on a e-reader instead of using a deadtree book?

          I often wonder that since most of my recent (last 5 years) worth of reading materials have been purchased as digital copies rather than physical copies. Given how universities tend to be in more of the loop when it comes to current trends, I've wondered how accepted ebooks were in the classroom setting.
