At the moment it looks like there will be close to 10 who get a D or an F simply because they did not do the work AND not surprisingly failed the exams.

Were any of those ten people amongst those who showed up for the review?

1 of the 2 at the review was on the at risk list.

I was always amazed at how many fellow students would pull that crap. Then they'd whine that I'd "blown the curve" for them because I did all the work, passed all the tests and AMAZINGLY got an "A" in the course.

*shakes head* Do students not realize that they actually have to do the work and show up for reviews to pass the course? Or do they just not care? Anytime I did poorly in a class, it was because I didn't do the work. I have only myself to blame.
