I have to 'me too' this one! In my physics courses, we had 2 hours to 
finish our labs. I felt completly rushed and so did our TA's. They ended 
up practically giving us the answers just so that we would finish and 
we'd stop bugging them! My group & I always got at least a 9/10 on them, 
but did we really know how to apply that? Not really.

And if we had taken our time to really learn it in the lab (isn't that 
what's lab for?) we would had only gotten half way through and gotten 
5's. And belive me those 9's and 10's really helped in the end. Physics 
was not my strong point.
