what i feel a lot of the time about math is not exactly arrogance, but close... i just took my first sorta upper level course in lin. algebra, and i got a d on the first test, a hundred on the second, and now i am unsure about how i did on the final (maybe a b). the sort of arrogance comes from me going through this thought process: "i didn't get that right on the test, but i understood it pretty easily afterwards so i understand the concept"... am i just fooling myself into thinking i can study math successfully? i don't think the class was that hard, contrary to my grades, but still i don't figure out the answers a got wrong until thinking a lot about the problems after the test on my own. i guess i just feel like i have no real feedback and i just make things up in my head that i wanna hear. what do you think?
