Help My Girlfriend With Her Online Recording Arts Class Final?

Answer what you can? Or is there an answer sheet somewhere? The cutoff date for the test is this Tuesday. I don't know how many questions the test actually is, but the above is the recommended study material. Thank you! : D

Disclaimer:
She doesn't want to learn. We want to deconstruct the antiquated relationship between formal education and economic status and stuff and so and so and political and philosophical and ethical things like that. Or something. She'll study this and learn. Your help will just get rid of the pointless busywork answer searching. She isn't lazy, or anything. I just want to be a good boyfriend. ::{

I can't quite figure out what's going on, so I'll give some replies for whatever the situation may be.

A - You've been registered here for two years. You should be able to answer these yourself or be resourceful enough to google them in the time it took you to write this up.

B - You don't have a girlfriend. Do your own homework.

C - Your girlfriend has no business being in a field that requires both diligence and fastidiousness. Let her learn by allowing her to fall on her face.

Haha well played dcollins. Seriously man? How are you or her (imean someone's being a pus...hy user...) learning the how and why of those q's is kinda important, especially if you want to be taken seriously (too late). Your idea of deconstructing learning how to record makes me chuckle lololololol

Wow just when you thought you had heard everything! Well I guess you guys are well on your way to deconstruction as you have done a pretty good job with the bolded part of that sentence above. 6 ands and a couple of so and so's. Or something.

She isn't lazy? She just doesn't want to do the work and is trying to find a creative excuse for cheating.

can we say cop out? Oh and you just go right ahead and enable the behavior. Congrats on being a good boyfriend. Oh wait last time I checked being a good boyfriend meant you convinced here to do the work not justify cheating.

This current generation. You guys scare the hell out of me. Just think in another ten years people like you and her will possibly be in charge of shit,god forbid.

It's not the current generation. It's the same stupidity that's existed since the dawn of humanity. The internet just makes it a lot easier for them to talk to the rest of us.

Tell her to get a job in an industry where she

(a) doesn't need to know anything,

(b) doesn't need any real skills or talent, and

(c) stands a ghost of a chance of making a living.


I suggest selling insurance.

She obviously doesn't want to be an audio engineer or she'd be recording and mixing music. And wouldn't be asking people to help her cheat on an exam that covers only the most superficial and rudimentary aspects of the profession.

If she was really interested in the subject she would have made herself sufficiently familiar with the subject so that she would have known enough to pass that test before she even signed up for the course.

The last thing the world needs is more clueless "audio school" grads.

Sorry if I'm being a bit rough here but it's the truth.

As an adjunct recording professor and a full time engineer, I'm interested in what school this is from. I guess i'll send it around to some of my colleagues and ask.

You and your girfriend (aka you) should find a new career path with something you love enough to want to learn it.

Please turn in your headphones, and sm57s on you way out the door.

One time, many, many years ago, I cut my class in school to go to my friends class so I could hang out with him. Unfortunately it was a day they were giving a test. So I stayed and took the test even though I wasn't registered for the class and didn't know anything about his major! (Architecture)

Anyway, a girl kept tapping me on the shoulder and asking me for answers, so I kept giving them to her.

After the test, my friend, who had gotten a kick out of me taking the test asked me, "What did she want?"

I told him, "Answers."

He said, "And you gave them to her?! You don't even know them yourself!"

I told him, "Serves her right for cheating."


Regards,
Frank

Never listen to opinions regarding gear. For every 50 nobodies on Gearslutz that say a piece of gear doesn't sound good enough to cut it, I know at least one somebody who is cutting it in NYC with that piece of gear.

I'm guessing the answers are in the text. Oh, yeah! She never bought the text, right?

A thought. If there are any essay answers, maybe you should back away from helping with that.

Hi! No, he's not joking. Unfortunately you are reading far too much into it! This is actual study guide from Music 165 class at Pierce college. All these questions were on both tests but apparently these morons didn't study at all. I doubt he has a girlfriend... ... prob never been laid

Well then they deserve to flunk.

And the college should be ashamed of themselves for taking people's money for such a lame course.
