Now that you've watched the video and have context for what follows, let's discuss a bit more.
In the video, I say that wrong answers can be interpreted as a sign that you are moving toward your goal. Don't overlook the other thing I say: that in order for wrong answers to point you in the right direction, you need to invest time and energy between practice tests to strengthen your understanding of the concepts and techniques that were required for the questions you answered incorrectly—even better if you also do this for the questions to which you guessed the correct answer.
It's in this key step that you truly transform what some may interpret as a setback into fuel to propel you forward.
In other words: A supposed setback won't determine whether you are headed in the direction of your goal. Your perception of what happened and your subsequent will.
Obviously, there may be a point where no matter how much you study, it seems like you've hit a plateau. If so, you may want to get some fresh input from a test prep coach, like me.
