lol Well whoever is teaching those courses should try and learn something that doesn't ignore the factual truth known by pretty much everyone who owns a smartphone. Batteries don't last 3 years unless you consider being able to make a phone go from full charge to dead in a few hours without using it working.
As to your post, no, like most people I know I in no way do all the things you should do to try and extend the life of a battery.
