Throughout my time on the forums I've been given several pieces of advice. I would just like to comment on them because I've had time to think about them now.
Don't be afraid to start over.
J Mather especially suggests this. I've tried it with my helmet. I have helmet 1 2 3 and 2.5. It's worked well for me so far. I just haven't tried it with projects I've put a lot of effort in.
Your school is terrible. You need to change schools.
My school has more than a 90% job placement rating. I'm thinking it's more likely the problem is with me, not the school. I've talked to my instructor and he says most students can complete their assignments on time. I don't even come close.
Progress is progress even if it's slow.
I don't think I've been given this advice, but I believe it. The problem is the school doesn't see it this way. If I continue to not meet these deadlines which I come no where close to meeting I'll be removed from the CAD program at my school. I understand that in a job completing tasks on time is essential and the school is just trying to train me for that. I just wish I could learn solidworks without fear of getting removed from the program because I'm too slow.
Does anyone have suggestions on what I should do?
