* "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" Problem Logging In?

If you get an "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" error when you try to log in, you need to be sure you are accessing the board with a url that starts with "https://ecauldron.com".  If it starts with https://www.ecauldron.com" (or "http://www.ecauldron.com") you will get this error because "www.ecauldron.com" is not technically the same website as "ecauldron.com". Moving to the more secure "https" means it is more picky about such things.

I had the same teacher for US History I and II. I received 95, and 98, throughout both classes my teacher kept threatening to fail me because I was not taking enough notes.  I kept asking him are the notes for me or for you? Getting a 98 on the regents finally shut him up.

 
Good for you! That just goes to show everybody learns differently! Some people need reams of notes, some don't. (Or, YMMV.)

Regents Exam is probably the oldest "teaching to the test" system in the US.

Could you have passed the Regents if you had learned US history only up to the year 1783?  Lots of notes or no notes doesn't help if the teacher doesn't cover most of the material for the state exams. Yes, there will be a small number of kids who will read ahead on 200 years of history, but not many.

Up to 1783, no I would not have passed.  I love history.  I grew up in Brooklyn, NY.  It was a shock to me to (after high school), to find out the in depth history of other States.  

For some of the other classes I needed lots of notes.
