Why can't I remember anything? This has bitten me in the ass time and again, this time around I blew a job interview. It was for a junior part-time programming position(Java), but they asked me about a bunch of other things like Turing machine and networks as well, because I said I took courses about them at school. I passed both those particular courses, but I could barely remember anything at the interview a year later; I just had some vague picture of the TM from a textbook in my head and I squeezed out some words that I suspected pertained to it; same with networks, I babbled out something trying to answer one of their questions but then I fucked up with the layers of abstraction and said a total nonsense. They, on the other hand, knew their shit perfectly, even the manager who said earlier he wasn't an IT guy. I'm first year of a CS Master's on poor-tier school.

How can I be this retarded, /adv/?

If you don't understand the layers of abstraction to the point that you can't verbally explain it to others then I don't even...

for fucks sake I'm an idiot truck driver and even I can do that

Do you actually use this knowledge for anything? I'm working as a programmer right now. I've forgotten pretty much everything I studied about during my university time 5 to 2 years ago except what I have or make use of at work. There are some things I do remember from my security courses as well because we did elaborate experiment assignments on those things. If you've been ass-blasting your brain with concepts you're not going to make use for and all you had to do was to memorize them for an exam I'm not surprised you forgot about them.

Yea, but how come all of them knew it and I didn't? I mean, they studied this shit same as I did, and probably haven't use use since they left school.
