## Main Question or Discussion Point

Hi everyone. I am a second year maths major. I just wrote my first test in linear algebra. I am quite sure I did not do well. I'm pretty sure I did not get more than 70%. The problem was the proofs. I had trouble proving things, and I am uncertain if my proofs were valid. I knew the theorems and definitions pretty well, and that part I probably did pretty ok in. Time was an important factor. Given enough time I can work out proofs, but sometimes I still get them totaly wrong still. Is this something I need to be worried about, or is your first linear algebra test usually difficult, or what?
