You have to watch out with classes.

Agree, there's good and bad out there.

However, I recall a former professor explaining to me that as you take more advanced classes, the instructors lie to you less.


I think his point was that for beginners and intermediates, there are all kinds of simplifications to not make the subject overly complicated, and boggle the students' minds.

For example ... did my high school math teacher lie to me when he taught that there was no such thing as the square root of a negative number? And then in "Intro to EE", hearing that imaginary number i (square root of -1) was an essential concept? My mind was definitely boggled.
