Learn from Your Mistakes

The essence of learning from mistakes while preparing for the GRE, especially in math, involves a deep and reflective approach rather than a superficial one.
  • Watching explanation videos, even for correctly answered questions, is crucial to uncover any missed insights.
  • Learning from mistakes goes beyond knowing the right steps; it requires understanding the underlying mathematical logic.
  • Reflecting on what you know and questioning your understanding primes your mind for deeper learning from solutions.
  • Striving to never make the same mistake twice, by deeply understanding and avoiding future errors in similar concepts, is key to progress.
  • Setting high expectations for learning from each mistake accelerates advancement in mathematical understanding.
