Hi,

Welcome to LQ!

As per LQ Rules
Quote:
Do not post homework assignments verbatim. We're happy to assist if you have specific questions or have hit a stumbling point, however. Let us know what you've already tried and what references you have used (including class notes, books, and searches) and we'll do our best to help. Keep in mind that your instructor might also be an LQ member.
How do you expect to learn anything by requesting this type of help?
Maybe review your text or assigned material for the exam so YOU can learn from this exam experience.

Hope this helps.
Have fun & enjoy!

Hello Onebuck !

Actually, it is not cheating because it is specified that we can ask for help and use Internet...

I would then suggest using Google to find the answers, rather than asking someone for the answers.

Knowing how to find an answer is sometimes more important than knowing the answer. But getting someone else to do the work doesn't teach you anything.

Hi,

Back too my point; How do you expect to learn by having someone else do the work for you? Investigate using the text & Internet to find helpful information then apply and post when you are stuck or need a nudge.

You will learn by doing and finding out your weakness then learn where to reinforce your studies.

I also suggest that you should look at; http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...#faq_lqwelcome

Hope this helps.
Have fun & enjoy!

Note that Onebuck did not use the term cheating in their response. Please do not attribute words to someone unfairly.

Understand all that Onebuck and jpollard have said to you is that you should put in your own effort to answer your questions and not just expect someone to tell you these answers. Their point being is that you learn absolutely nothing.

You stated "within 2 hours", and that this is also a very rude way to ask for help.

Quite some time ago someone went one step farther than you have, they didn't say it was for an exam, they didn't say please, they just posted about 20 or 30 questions, verbatim from whichever test or assignment they had. LQ members unfortunately (yes, self included) responded with humorous answers. Some of those answers could've been construed as valid. Therefore if the OP did read, they could've submitted some very interesting or awkward answers for their assignment.

One way I've seen this perhaps work better is where the OP does post they're doing an assignment, or exam; they post the questions and the answer choices, and also post what their choice is. They ask if they are correct, or if other members agree with their answers. This at least shows that you're trying to learn.
