Thee were a few specific engineering technology class subjects that I never thought I would use at all in the future; some of these ended up coming in very useful for my work. While I did well in these classes, I didn't pay much attention as I probably could have. I could have made things easier by taking more detailed notes in class so it would be easier to refresh on subjects in the future. You never know when you will need to call on your education to solve problems out there. It is really important to know the basics, and know where you can find more specific information you may need. I still keep my old textbooks and class notes for reference. A lot of times I can find certain information there faster than on the internet. Taking good notes really helps one retain information, and provides good future reference-for tests and beyond.
