I am so exhausted with this fucking subject of communication systems 😭😭 I am a CSE student and this shit is never ever ever ever gonna help me , but I am forced to mug up this shit just because of my shittiest mistakes and a fucker for a teacher.
I failed this subject in my second year. Partly because this was the most stupidest useless subject, partly because i gave my internships more priority, and partly because a teacher thought it would be fun to mess up with my internal marks and give me 10/30 , leaving me to get around 32~50% marks o pass this subject.
I have given this subject's paper for 2 times and failed. now am at the end of my college and this exam is all that is left , don't know whenever it would happen or however it would happen.
I might have an option to drop this exam completely because i will have all the required credits once the results of 8th sems are out(and i have hopefully passed them all)
however let me talk about how stupid this subject is. the whole point of learning this subject is to become a walking wikipedia of mugged up formulas and circuit diagrams.
Envelope detector, phase discriminant, Automatic gain control characteristics, mu=Am/Ac, freq shift, coherent detector,... these are all so manny buzzwords that i have never heard anywhere except this shit subject. As devs we would be always playing (if veryyyy rarely) with the devices that are way in the upper layers and have all these circuits BUILT IN. No one is gonna start making wave diagrams if a faulty modem does not work. I have studied other networking subjects too that worked with gsm/cdma/ upper layer stuff,and i loved those , but this shit... i am done with it.
I could relate to only the fewest of the topics which rarely, if ever might be used in some better appliances, for eg probabilities and random variable might be used in heuristic learning/ai , and gaussian distributions are widely used in image filters, but apart from that , i am killing my brain cells by mugging up this shit :'(
I am learning how to find noise man... fucking mathematics for noise! I ain't ever working bose or apple's ipod division trying to tune circuits for receivers to choose between amplitude or frequency modulation for lesser noise... even those fuckers would have their shit sorted out about this and they would have one universal solution to follow... this subject is way too meta for me.... please kill me now :'(😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭
After trying to pass this exam for the last 2 years, i have made handwritten notes of over 250 pages in 3 different registers. yet if i start from the topic 1, i would end up forgetting it when reaching the topic 2million 55 or whatever the last number is8
