Anyone go the whole semester without reading a book for a class?

So I went throught the entire semester and aced all the assignments and quizes becasue they were untimed and open book. But I have not read a chapter in the book. I could not tell you what it is even about. So I have a week to read 16 chapters so I can pass my final. Way to procrastinate, huh? Anyother slackers out there.

because it is not a super hard class. It is not the first time, but I will stll get an A if I get a d on the final. I only do it for my general eds because usually they are so boring, but never for my degre required classes. I am a bad student I know

I admit it. I've done it many times. Although, I think I only did it because I could. Maybe if the first time I slacked off like that, I'd failed the test, maybe I'd have thought twice about doing it again. But like you, I aced my exams. So there was no reason to stop! I got through most of college that way. Graduate school is another story though, sadly. ;-)

I did this many times already. Even when I'm about to fail, I still procrastinate. There's no point in reading if you can't understand those jargons. Even the professor failed to explain it properly. It always happens to me on minor subjects. Luckily I was able to pass.

Yeah i will pass, but with simple things I am so stupid, but if it is hard I have already finished all teh coursework by mid term. Go figure.

OH I love those professors who has an open book policy. LOL. And yes, I'm one of those persons who procrastinate. I usually cram all my studying to around 2 to 1 day before the finals because if I study earlier, chances are I'd probably forget what I've studied even more finals came. I really have a short-term memory.

I went through the whole trimester without reading a book. I can actually just count the classes that I had in my entire 3 years in college where we were required to read something from a book.

Yep. I sure did. Can you believe that it was a forign language class, Spanish. Can you believe I actually got a B. I forgot when one of my finals was and I arrived an hour late for another one. I also did not get to study for anything. So don't feel bad!! Us fellow slackers just hope for the best.
