So, what'd you guys think? I'm not sure if we're allowed to discuss specifics, but I'm not particularly worried about that. I thought the thematic essay was pretty stupid, to be honest. Not hard, just stupid. The rest of the test was incredibly easy.

By Hertish (Hertish) on Wednesday, June 16, 2004 - 01:27 pm: Edit

everything was soo easy

i didn't study at all because i already studied for the SAT II in june

By Jess13 (Jess13) on Wednesday, June 16, 2004 - 05:44 pm: Edit

thematic was dumb. easy. physics was hard tho. ouch

By Iluvme (Iluvme) on Wednesday, June 16, 2004 - 05:57 pm: Edit

i def def bombed physics no joke

By Laurenh87 (Laurenh87) on Wednesday, June 16, 2004 - 06:01 pm: Edit

Yeah US History was such a joke

Physics, on the other hand.... Ouch

By Laurenh87 (Laurenh87) on Wednesday, June 16, 2004 - 06:04 pm: Edit

Why can't we discuss specifics? This isn't like the AP exam or anything...

If we can, I'd love to check some of my Physics answers!

By Curtisny (Curtisny) on Wednesday, June 16, 2004 - 06:19 pm: Edit

we can discuss it because giving it after this morning isn't allowed.

What was the answer to the Persian Gulf question? Middle East Oil?

By Rsxman (Rsxman) on Wednesday, June 16, 2004 - 06:20 pm: Edit

They didn't say anything about copyright issues or problems with talking about the test. I don't see the problem at all. So...let's get started.

By Sulskman (Sulskman) on Wednesday, June 16, 2004 - 06:21 pm: Edit

yes all regents are released tests, so we can discuss. The answers will be posted on the NYS dept. of education website shortly.

By Jess13 (Jess13) on Wednesday, June 16, 2004 - 06:23 pm: Edit

I put oil for that one....ok, so im guessing the problem with physics wasnt just me?

By Monoe (Monoe) on Wednesday, June 16, 2004 - 06:31 pm: Edit

Hehe, the only questions involving George Bush and oil have the former as the question and the latter as the answer.

What was the 'checks and balances one'? I was caught between 'ratify a treaty' and....that other one.

By Jess13 (Jess13) on Wednesday, June 16, 2004 - 06:34 pm: Edit

I said ratify a treaty....I also thought the electoral college question was funny hehe. that and the oil question made me laugh

By Laurenh87 (Laurenh87) on Wednesday, June 16, 2004 - 06:42 pm: Edit

Yeah. Definitely oil and treaty.

Physics- uggh. To have the doppler effect happen, do you have to be accelerating towards or is it at a constant rate?

Also, sound waves are what kind of waves?

And for the last part A, with the point with two waves coming thru it from opposite direction, what did you guys get?

By Hertish (Hertish) on Wednesday, June 16, 2004 - 06:46 pm: Edit

I guess physics regents wasn't that easy based on what u guys say. My school used to require us to take physics regents during junior year but they changed the policy this year; they now require us to take the physics final made by teachers.

Yea, it was awful because the final was much harder than past regents exam

By Jess13 (Jess13) on Wednesday, June 16, 2004 - 06:48 pm: Edit

sound waves are longitudinal....have the same question about the doppler effect....

By Efelder (Efelder) on Wednesday, June 16, 2004 - 06:50 pm: Edit

i put u had to accelerate for the doppler question.

the point would remain stationary cuz the waves would cancel themselves out.

and sound waves are longitudonal.

What was the one with graph of the current and potential difference?

And the one with the hitting on the breaks friction question on Part C?

By Netmet (Netmet) on Wednesday, June 16, 2004 - 07:54 pm: Edit

hitting on the brakes you just had to calculate the friction force and the last question to that part- what is the velocity?- the answer was 15 m/s i believe

By Zas1987 (Zas1987) on Wednesday, June 16, 2004 - 08:13 pm: Edit

US regents... what was the answer to why there was open immigration for most of the 1800's?

By Rsxman (Rsxman) on Wednesday, June 16, 2004 - 08:14 pm: Edit

The questions with George bush, answer was something like, to make sure allies and US will continue to have oil.

Domino theory had to do with Vietnam War.

Generalization about Korean War based on maps: Not too sure about the answer, but it was the last choice.

The matching Supreme court case was the one with interstate commerce


Camp David ACcords the second to last answer.

THat's all i remember for now.

I have no life, yes I know I don't.

Hahaaha

By Netmet (Netmet) on Wednesday, June 16, 2004 - 08:31 pm: Edit

Zas1987---i put they were useful for investment capital as the answer and for korea diagram i put that korea continued to be divided

By Zas1987 (Zas1987) on Wednesday, June 16, 2004 - 08:59 pm: Edit

why would it be investment capital? werent the old immigrants (like those who came during the irish potato famine or something)really poor? so how would they provide investment capital? im really confused

By Xjay2max (Xjay2max) on Wednesday, June 16, 2004 - 09:10 pm: Edit

I put for that that "there was a shortage of labor" or something. I put it because there was a massive increase in factories and not enough laborers... remember, during this time factory owners actually went to Europe to convince people of what a "great life" people had in America, and etc. Tell me if I'm wrong ;T

By Rsxman (Rsxman) on Wednesday, June 16, 2004 - 09:32 pm: Edit

When do they post the test for this year on the NYS regents website?

By Nyc33 (Nyc33) on Wednesday, June 16, 2004 - 11:00 pm: Edit

oh the for the korea q. i think was a separation btween north and south korea

By Xjay2max (Xjay2max) on Wednesday, June 16, 2004 - 11:00 pm: Edit

yes. Nyc33, that's right.

and considering i am korean...

What's up, dont post much, but have some info. The passing curve for Physics is 49 out of a possible 85 (which is a 57.6), so that obviously means the rest of the curve is pretty generous. The only reason I know this is because I saw the principal walk in with a paper, showed my teacher, and my teacher asked me to borrow my calculator and typed in 49/85. When I saw this I figured it was the passing grade, asked, and he said yes. Anyway:
Some said before, but just confirming:
Persian Gulf=Oil
Middle East one= Camp David Accords
Immigrants= US shortage of labor (it's the answer, I've seen it before)
Korea= Boundaries stayed the same or something like that.

For the first Physics part two one with the race car track, did you use piD for circumfrance, and then solve getting like 27.something m/s? The picture for b of that question made it look like the car was going upside down, it was stupid. And also the person jumping staright in the air one. I got like 3.2 m, but it seemed way too high. That is a big jump. But w/e maybe I'm just thinking too much. Later~

By Zas1987 (Zas1987) on Thursday, June 17, 2004 - 10:08 am: Edit

yes i agree w/ all of those!
