Temporary Change

Hi guys,

As always, after your exams this and next week, please send in your solution keys and past exams.

At the moment, some members of the student body as well as Faculty (I won’t say on the site) are trying to shut this site down. Therefore, I’ve had to take some exams down until this gets sorted out. Please continue supporting this site by commenting and petitioning against the destruction of this site! If we wish to be the change we wish to see in the world, we must act upon it. Please contribute back to the ME student body by sending in your past exams and let us make the effort to keep this site going for our incoming Freshman,  Sophomore and the likes.

Thank you for your support and I hope this passes over quickly so that we can keep this resource open to all students without societal or financial obligations.

Please comment below on concerns or random comments.

    This is ridiculous! How am I supposed to study for ME 300 if I don’t have any previous exams??? This not right. I need whichever student or faculty to explain why exams were taken down.

      Hey Kevin,

      See my response below for what I would call a 30 second explanation. Also, if you go to “All Practice Exams” there should be some 300 exams at the bottom of the page.

    Pi Tau’s mad because Cannon is rightfully assisting students instead of holding a marketing scam on the student body. Pi Tau is an elite and well-respected organization, but hopefully they can find other ways to earn revenue. I don’t see why professors are opposed to the site?

      Hi Raj,

      In Pi Tau’s defense we were not mad because this website is providing competition for us. If anything we were disappointed in our members donations to the organization (our past exams) being used in an application that we had not originally intended. As far as alternative sources for revenue, we are always trying to explore new sources. This test bank will only force us to have to look a little more in depth for alternative revenue sources. Thanks for saying we are well-respected, that means a lot! Best.

    As far as I know, there aren’t any professors that are objecting. As a matter of fact, I think ME 300 has a link to this site on their course page somewhere.

    Hey everyone,

    My name is Nate Bergman and I am the President of Pi Tau Sigma and wanted to clear a few things up and hopefully answer your questions at the same time. First the exams we requested to be removed from this site were past exams written by Pi Tau members, not answer keys distributed by Professors. We believe that exams written by members of our organization who willingly donate their personal property to PTS in an effort to benefit the organization should not be duplicated and distributed. The revenue that we collect from our test sales is dedicated to many of our service and social activities dedicated to bettering both the ME and greater Lafayette communities. These activities include the Pi Tau lounge (we generate little to no profit with this endeavor each semester), the ME Social, the PTS after-school carnival at the Greater Lafayette Boys and Girls Club, our Elementary Outreach program intended to introduce elementary students to engineering, PTS sponsored Service events including Blood Drives, and industrial activities including events with BP, Schlumberger, Honeywell, GE, to name a few. If any of you have an issue with our efforts at continuing test sales in ME please do not hesitate to contact me at nbergma@purdue.edu and I will try me best to answer your questions. Thanks and I hope this brief response will provide some justification to our actions.

    -Nate
