First off, thank you for posting your input Laser, it was highly appreciated. To clarify this "read entire chapters for homework".. I don't understand this at all not because I don't want to read chapters. But because if that's all I needed to do for this class was read a bunch of chapters and take a test, I could have done that on my own and tested out of the course. The reason I take a class at all is to get someone to TEACH me the book, not to study the book and ask a lazy teacher an occasional question. If an entire chapter is necessary, fine.. but I'm reading a book and getting no input from the teacher. The book is teaching me then, not the teacher, which I feel is wrong. I pay for a teacher, I should get teaching. That's why that's on my list of "wtf"s.
