Finally the examination of Calculus BC ended. Overall, very good, I’d have to say. The questions were not harder than I expected and the time is OK for me. I even checked three times just in case if there existed an incorrect answer. Free response was not difficult but only needed a lot of explanations. Btw, Caihua Chen, my Calculus BC teacher, is excellent at teaching. All the questions he mentioned in the class were tested in the real examination.
I was very confident at that moment, or say, at the very beginning. While doing the Free Response questions, however, I felt tough and overwhelmed. There are six questions in the section, and I did not finish the last one. Time is up. I am stupid on time arrangement. The worst part is that there existed only one real question asking to calculate while others were only statements, which led me to doubt whether the test is Language or Statistics.
Conclusion: Time is Tight, Questions are Too Simple
A little bit more.
Time is Tight: I just tried my best to write in details but may be too much. I put a lot of effort on how to do this and that.
Question is Too Simple: Yes, that is right. In the stupid Barron the questions are even harder than the real questions. I was shocked when I saw those direct and simple questions. I thought, “Oh Dear! This is too simple! Maybe I should read the question again” and so I did it -- three or five times. That was the point I wasted too much time.
Alright, just hope that I would never fail to arrange my time again, and you guys should pay attention to where I failed.
Tomorrow is my Calculus exam. Although my preparation has not started yet, I should put all of my effort on it.
