Circuits Final

  • Mines

I finished my circuits final on Sunday night at 9:30 pm. There are five problems are on the take home exam and it took me about 9 hours of work to get the entire thing done. That’s almost two hours per a problem. So much so that I decided to document my entire exam here for posterity.

So here it is: My Fall 2007 Engineering Circuit Analysis Take Home Final.

One note I would like to make. The last problem turned out to be very easy since there was an example in the book, almost. In the example, there was an extra resistor (R3) that connected to ground that is not present in the exam. However, I figured that if I put a resistor in there anyway and it’s resistance infinite, it would allow me to use the equations from the book. The Lazy Genius.

I’m have my Information Systems test today and I think that of all my exams, this is the one I’m looking forward to the least. Well, I was. It’s still going to be a tough test. But as it turns out, I actually have a wide margin on this exam.

To keep my current grade, I need to score between 35% and 85%. I gain a letter grade by score between 85% and 100%. If I don’t take the exam, I drop a letter grade.

I remember a similar issue with Physics II a year ago.

Any how, the point is that I find it kind of depressing how large my window is to do nothing with my grade, yet at the same time it’s nice to know that I’ll be passing. 😕
