i don't know what's wrong with you people. the instructors basically baby sit all of you the entire semester and then you can't wait to get online and complain about the final.
for those of you who are whining about the 3 page program example with 9 questions...use what little brain power you have and tear out the pages that the code is on and lay them out. if it's front and back, then go ask for another copy of the exam. that way you don't have to do all the "rather tedious flipping" back and forth. even though flipping is very, very hard work...
i will admit, there were some hard parts to the exam and some things didn't make sense, such as passing the global constant to a function. yes, global constants are global for a reason, but they can't just hand you an A on the FINAL EXAM. an A in almost any college level course is hard to get, so you the students must use your brains to get there.
so go to class, stop whining, and study. if you can't handle it, or feel like it's unfair, then go somewhere else. go back to a lower level class so you can be prepared. either that or just pick a different major.
for the most part, the professors here at VT are very competent and they know how to challenge their students.
