GeneralIt appears there's something worse than math... Pin

I did not think it was possible, but there IS something worse than math (well, it's still partly math, but not entirely).
Coming saturday I'm taking my third chance at an exam about communication technology. It's part math, part physics and completely impossible.

Stuff I should know is how a telephone works, how radio works, how a modem works, how the internet works, etc.
We have waves that travel at a certain frequency and there's noise on the channel and we can multiplex it and convert it to bytes using transducers, put it back on a wave using modulators, put a sinus function in there, magically apply cosinus, of course we need to remove redundancy, add line coding and channel coding... And of course there's all kinds of formulae to calculate stuff. AAAARGHHHH!!!

I scored a 4 twice (on a scale from 1 to 10 with 10 being the highest score). It's 40 multiple choice questions and I answered 23 questions correctly (twice, at least I'm not un-learning), but I need 27 correct questions for a 5,5 (passing grade). Which makes this even more impossible.

Is anyone here working in the field? Or knows a bit about it?
Any tips that might make me see the light?

Why did I ever want to study again? Confused | :confused:
It's an OO world.
