Algebra & Chemistry... Every Time!

Every time I took Algebra I had to take it a second time. Chemistry, college Chemistry, Pre-Algebra, Algebra I, Algebra II, College Algebra... oh yea and Logic (failed)

It was the last instructor who figured out that I couldn't take the test regularly... I would come in after the test and he would have 5 problems on the board and I would "teach" him how to solve them. When he found out that I knew what I was doing he told me to become a tutor. I excelled in tutoring and teaching.... though I would still fail the test if done the normal way. *shrugs* that is just how my mind works I guess.

The thing about college Chemistry... my partner was an idiot... she actually used the shower, melted our books with sulfuric acid, burned herself... and SHE PASSED THE CLASS!

Haha! I'm not laughing at your failure, but your idiotic partner. Daft or otherwise, she sounds like a riot to work with.<br />
The opposite thing happened to me with Chemistry. I was failing the class, but managed to get a 95 on the final exam. Not because I knew the material very well, but because I have an odd knack for standardized testing.

Peoples brains work in different ways sometimes. It sounds like you figured this out and found ways to develop and use your talents.
