I took Auto Shop in High School and the class was ... undisciplined ... After the basic introduction and safety rules we started doing drum brakes. I was the only one paying attention and the only one that passed the incredibly easy test. So we did drum brakes again. Everyone complained and then goofed off even more. So we did drum brakes again. Then we did disc brakes twice and the semester was over. I felt cheated out of some practical auto maint/repair experience which has been more than made up for by owning a Jeep.
