I was an undergrad in a big univ. My friend took a computer hardware class designed for third-year kids in Electrical Engineering. He had to do a project which was a box with chips and wires on the inside. Generally it seemed like a tough class.

A few years later I went to a smaller college and took the equivalent class. The whole class was just lectures, and three Scantron (multiple choice) tests. Didn't get much out of it.

I once read that this is the reason why they use standardized tests for college admissions. Because the high schools differ in difficulty. Have you ever experienced something like this?
