Familiarity Fools the Mind

I *feel* like I'm getting better at SAT math.

Turns out that feelings aren't facts. Practice test scores not improving (yet), despite being able to solve formerly elusive slope and function problems.

I told my son this morning, Daniel Willingham says, when you think you know the material cold, study 20% more.
