I’ve been taking classes to get a degree in civil engineering, and I haven’t been having the easiest time. I ask the teacher about many concepts that he discusses, but sometimes I have a little trouble. I looked for external aids to help me in the classes, and found a website that has spreadsheets for structural learning, along with other things related to civil engineering. Many people take courses in civil engineering, but not all of them come out with the knowledge and skills required to make the cut in the real world. This was the toughest set of classes that I faced, and I wanted to make sure that I passed them so I could reach my career goal.
The spreadsheet helped me out a great deal, and it really showed when I got the results back from my latest test. It was the highest scoring grade I had ever gotten in the class, and on top of that, it was the highest test score in the class. I missed a couple of questions because I forgot the answer, but I understood exactly what the correct answer should have been. The teacher was impressed with my test score.
Now that I’ve gotten the ball rolling, I have to work to keep myself on track. I’ve learned a lot more from the resources that I found on the website than I was able to extract from my own textbook. The combined knowledge of people who have already been taught in the ways of civil engineering is quite the useful tool. When the classes are over, I might be able to contribute to the website by adding some of my own knowledge. As time changes, new information becomes available, and future generations who decide to become educated in civil engineering will be glad to have a study aid.
