"We cross our bridges when we come to them and burn them behind us, with nothing to show for our progress except a memory of the smell of smoke, and a presumption that once our eyes watered." - Guildenstern, Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead

There was smoke, however not coming from the calculators, but from our ears...

This is multivariate analysis without a computer? Jeez, that's heavy duty.

Well, the thing is, we DO use computers in class all the time, but they aren't allowed on the exam...

So we have to know how to do all the relevant parts by hand so that we know instantly which given values to use for which required step on the exam.

Of course, preparing for the exam isn't exactly made any easier by our prof who only gives us practice problems to be solved using Excel...

We usually make up our own problems to practice by hand, which results in crappy data and meaningless answers, but at least we learn the mechanics that way.

It's no fun at all.

Hope you're able to take a bit of time for yourself during all of this... in the past I remember some of your best shots have come around exam time....
