If you have professors who like to put material in their exams that has never been mentioned in lectures/tutorials or in the textbook, I feel for ya :o. Sucks going into an exam thinking your top ♥♥♥♥ and coming out feeling like a ♥♥♥♥♥♥. :mad::mad:

Did you accidently call him "Mister"". It's Dr. Evil. They didn't spend six years in Evil Medical School to be called "Mister". That makes them mad. :mad:

You be in college now.:p You supposed to be able to read the prof's mind. My fave part was when you would mention it to them and they would say it was in the lecture notes. Look here.:rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes: The ones btw the day he didn't finish the lecture because the class got him/her sidetracked talking about other things.:D
Actually you are expected to do your own side research on the materials being discussed.

When I was @ school, one of the teachers would almost literally give out all the answers to the exam.
And still some people FAIL`d. lol.
I think he wanted to fix the general grades or something, if almost anyone passes the exams, it`s gotta be a good school, ryte?
Sometimes profs will just toss in somethng like "my favorite cheese is gouda, remember that for the exam" so that everyone who didnt show up that day will have no idea why such a question is on the exam..

Had a professor who added a paper for us to read over the weekend that wasn't on the syllabus, wasn't on the site, wasn't mentioned in class, and she didn't email us. When we all showed up for class and no one had read it she threw us all out. It was a gorgeous day outside so I was stoked.

What school do you go to OP? This actually happened to me yesterday and someone called the teacher out on it.

Back when I was in Calculus III, my teacher couldn't move the class along at a fast enough pace to cover vector calculus (line integrals, surface integrals, etc.), but left them on the final exam anyways. Lots of people were pissed about that class.

When I was in the 13th grade (Coastal Carolina), I had an English professor who once promised us, the day before finals, that The Wild Duck would be half the exam and I still didn't read it. I must've been the only happy one when the tests were handed out with no reference to even Donald Duck!

Happens all the time, you really need to be an independent learner at Uni. Just check out the reading list for the year and make sure you read the books over a few times, even if it's stuff that hasn;t been discussed in the lecture.
Sometimes they leave out huge portions of the module because the individual lecturer has no idea how to teach it or it's really boring, so it doesn't make for an engaging class.

This thread implies that you young'uns seem to think life is supposed to be fair or something. This teacher is givjng you a priceless lesson by failing you in this manner. You should thank him.

Yes this is terrible! I have a physics prof that does that, among other things to unecessarily complicate things, right now.

Perhaps you weren't paying attention when the topics were discussed.
Either that or he just thought he told you or he wants you all to fail.

A professor who challenges his students is a good professor. One that just gives you answers that are in lectures and text books isn't properly doing his job to train you for the future.

Maybe you needed to think critically about the question and apply different concepts you should've learned about to a more unfamiliar problem, and you just failed to make that cognitive leap.
You should probably try talking to the professor or a TA and asking them to walk you through the problem and see whether the method they use relies on things covered in class or the book

Been there, had a compsci course where they did that.
worst feeling ever when you look at questions like that on an exam.
