Remember you learn far better with SHORT blocks of time, five-minute reviews, several days in a row, every day.
You learn far less when you study LONG blocks of time, 60+ minutes, once a month.
Failing and messing up something when driving is a fantastic learning opportunity. Remember it. Study it. Make sure you understand the confusion. Be prepared to do better the next time the same situation arises.
