with the way the martians write some of these questions your english needs to be a little more than just 'okay' to understand what they're asking imo

Uh...am I going crazy?



Did the problem, got B. Marked it, got it wrong. The answer says C (no negative out in front). Watched the video and he calmly arrived at answer B.

tl;dr: Nope, you aren't crazy.

Seems there's been an issue with the definition of z_p changing.

Dave has addressed this in the TIA forum here:

I think he hasn't quite decided what to do about it yet.

This is my second go around and I just recently started hitting the material hard again. I have now realized that in 2 months I managed to forget about 70% of what I know. It's kind of like when you recognize someone, but you can't remember there name or anything about them. Guess I have my work cut out for me in these 2.5 months. Oh, and busy season. Joy. This is the last requirement I have before my ASA, so I'm hoping I can use that as motivation to take me to the promise land of ASA-hood. Heads down, everyone, lets do WORK.

ASM does not have a discussion of stimulation, but considering how boring the manual is, maybe it would be a good idea.
