I had my first test yesterday and didn't do well at all. It's only 16% of my total grade and I need a 75% to pass the class. These are definitely not unrealistic goals.
Unfortunately it came down to two answers and for some reason I thought the teacher was trying to trick us and went w/ the wrong answer.
I'm so scared that I will fail out of the class. Statistically several people will. I have an appt w/ the teacher to go over the test on Friday.
Any words of advice/encouragement?? I'm in a funk!

Chin up! I strait out failed my first test of this second semester, but have gotten back into the groove and done okay since. Identifying the cause may be helpful. Did you study enough but have test anxiety, wasn't quite as prepared as you might have been study wise, or do you have trouble diciphering the intent of the question, etc. Alot of times if you can pinpoint WHY you didn't do as well, you can work on the problem and be more successful.
I don't know about your program, but mine follows really close to the objectives, so if you study that really well, you'll do fine.
Sometimes, it's just getting that first test out of the way....an then you improve. So hopefully you will do better on the next one.
Hang in there!
