Do you/your family members/friends have any of those "for dummies" books?

#1
My sister has meditation for dummies. I think these have to be very popular (or at least were) with people who don't know about the internet.
#2
I remember seeing Windows 95 for dummies somewhere, but it was quite a while ago.

I have Forensic Psychology for Dummies. Cost about one tenth the price of the recommended textbook for that class. Got 65% overall so I guess it worked.

I have a few that I haven't cracked open in years. They're handy references if memory serves, but all of them I bought about things that I'm not interested in anymore.

I have Home Recording For Musician's For Dummies laying around somewhere.

The internet is great, and I've learned a ton on it, but sometimes you need to have something that straight tells you what's up rather than listening to a bunch of know-it-alls with differing opinions and bad grammar try to explain it.

It's laughable asking people on Reddit what the difference between 'Mixing' and 'Mastering' is or to explain what a 'bass trap' is and how to fix it.

In 2007 Banton was allegedly among a number of reggae artists who signed a pledge, the Reggae Compassionate Act, created by the Stop Murder Music campaign, to refrain from performing homophobic songs or making homophobic statements,[16] but he later denied that he had made any such commitment.[17]

Like many here I have the 'Guitar for Dummies' book. It's kind of useful but not exactly The Hitchhiker's Guide to Guitar.

I know there's something like that in an unpacked box somewhere. Probably related to home/appliance repair or sewing.

Nah here 70% is like a first or some shit. We just get given ludicrous tests I think

I got Ventriloquism for Dummies. But to be honest, I don't know how else you'd do it except with a dummy.

In the UK 65% would be a 2:1, equivalent of a B I guess. 70+ would be a first, which is the top grade boundry (excluding first with honours or merit or whatever it's called). It's very different to lower school marking though, where yeah 65 would be a bit of a shit mark.

I think the boundaries are adjusted slightly to reflect the spread of actual marks (so not everyone can get firsts), but I'm not sure.

It is a bit stupid in some ways though, as in essay based subjects it's very rare, if not impossible, to get 80 or higher. Not to imply it's easy to get 95 in a maths or science module, but it's at least possible.

Exams and such are made/marked with these grade boundaries in mind though. If somewhere else you were getting 90 and thus doing fine, then you wouldn't still be getting 90s in the UK. Exams will be made and marked on the assumption that 70+ is very good, and thus be as difficult to get.
