First Test is Nigh

I'm done with Chapter 1 in my linear algebra class and have scheduled my first test for this Friday. I generally understand the homework and can answer the instructor's questions (when he asks them in the video), but still I'm somewhat daunted. Even though I feel ready--and I haven't even checked out the review questions yet--the stress curve goes up a little because there's always a possibility of failure.

Some shrink from the fear; I intend to use that fear, that possibility, to motivate me. We'll see what happens.

I would say "good luck" but it shouldn't be "luck" that gets the job done, right?

Napoleon said that he'd rather his marshals have luck than skill. In my case, though, I want skill.
