Unfortunate that we keep dumbing down the classes so the lowest common denominator can pass.
A bright person like you could probably learn some advanced techniques and find them advantageous but it would probably make the class a drag for less intelligent kids.
There is always a further level that a subject can be carried if people aren't too lazy to pursue it.
Incidently I meet quite a few college-educated kids who are truly poorly equipped. I am astonished at what passes for an education these days. Are people able to tell when they are being taught something useless or are they just clueless about what they may be missing?
I know for me that many of the things I thought were worthless for my future came in handy later. Kids aren't always able to see what they need til they get there.
