I know it happens to us all... however, I always beat myself up over "stupid" mistakes way too much. What do you guys do, when you miss a question and then realize "oh man, I knew that answer why did I do that... I'm so stupid!"? However, I don't mind missing questions that I "don't know" the answer to just ones that I "know" the answer to. I'm doing so well this semester and I'm on track to make straight A's, but I just keep being too harsh against myself for these mistakes. On my Bio test today, I managed to make a B... when I could and "should" have made an A but these dumb mistakes cost me. Also, some of the questions I missed were on old exams that I studied, which is really inexcusable. I'm sorry for the rant... but I really need some help to overcome this state of mind ... any help would be most appreciated.
