Angry i wasn't sure the first time and now i feel like a retard-qs

anyone else has that feeling, when you start the q banks one last time and do those 'marked' and 'my qs' that one knows nothing??? i hate this accumulation of 'i wasn't sure the first time and now i feel like a retard' - qs....

well yea.
For that purpose i try to write down the concepts form the wrong questions and read them every once in a while, so then while reviewing wrong ones I will know what are they about.

Its hard to change your way of thinkining about qbank while you are doing it first time - cuz you always want it to be an evaluation tool and try to score high and do not care much about the explanations.

But then when you take the wrong ones and you still have no clue what are they all about - it comes to pure guessing and you score low and drop your cummulative of course.

So dont worry, learn them now.
