Dear students, please don't cheat!
After teaching for several years, I have seen my fair share of American cheating behaviors. Not a lot but some. Coming from a Country with more than a thousand years of formal examination system, and a museum on cheating, what I have seen can only be described as amateur. Professional or not, it is WRONG. Sometime, even good students do silly things that can potentially jeopardize their academic record. And, since now my school years are getting far behind me, I am having a hard time understanding why a couple of points matter more than one's integrity. So, dear students, unless you are pursuing a professional career where cheating is an essential skill, please do not cheat. When you play those little tricks, you are wasting my time and testing my patience.
