What does it prove if someone can solve the problem?

What does it prove if someone has unsupported subjective claims? Web and paper can withstand everything.

You're asking me to take the time to do free work that has (as far as I can see) no particular point. If there is a point, you haven't stated it. Now you're asking me to do free work using an inappropriate tool to make it as drudgery-filled as possible. Still no point.

Thanks, but no. Your analogy to John backing up his claims absolutely escapes me.

But you seem to have time more than enough to answer or correct many other stu..d posts. Something is wrong here.

Yes, if there's a point. If Ed were a struggling student or beginner trying to understand something, that would be different.

Exactly. Most of gross unsupported claims are strict logical constructions based on misunderstanding of basic concepts. No point in criticizing logical constructions that can be perfect, if not to know where is the error in basic assumptions.

Multiple choice (but show your work), pretty basic, with some discrete components, a tiny bit of Boolean algebra and other logic circuitry. The time limit was 30 minutes.

I was ushered to the cafeteria, which was initially quiet. Within five minutes it filled with line workers. I soldiered on. The very cold fish of a Human Resources person came to collect the thing at the end of the period. I could already tell that he disliked me intensely after our little chats.

I aced it, one of a couple who got a perfect score. When I went over it with Brad Plunkett, he asked me if I were sure of one of the Boolean questions, and when I said yes I was pretty confident, he marked that answer on the sheet he had

One of the questions was a cleverly worded one about the voltage at the output of a C-R voltage divider with sinusoidal excitation. Many many people got that wrong, including a VP from Harman-Motive, who wiggled and wriggled to insist that he was right, according to BP.
I also took comprehensive tests years ago and aced both of them. One head hunter never called me back as he said I was over qualified for the jobs he had and that no one ever aced it. hey. sure there are phase angles to consider in Z with L,C and R elements. Gotta run. Zoomin' all the time.
Next!
