Below is an essay on "Final Exam Mistakes" from Anti Essays, your source for research papers, essays, and term paper examples.

My mistakes, concerning the final exam, were larger in number than I had anticipated. I made mistakes, mainly on three different sections on the test: Transitive and Intransitive Verbs, Verb Tenses, and lastly on the Literature section.
The first section, Transitive and Intransitive Verbs, was very difficult, for I had studied the definitions backwards. A Transitive Verb has a direct object, whereas, an Intransitive Verb does not. I studied it oppositely where Transitive Verbs didn’t have the D.O. and the Intransitive Verbs did. I missed eight out of ten on that section, which is rather disappointing.
Later during the test, along came Verb Tenses. I remembered the six basic tenses from Mr. Camp’s class last year, but was very much confused on the progressive and participle forms. The ways, in which they were used, I did not fully comprehend. These six forms made my score much less than it would have been. Receiving a ten out of eighteen is completely disappointing.  
Lastly, Literature made some final deductions. Never have I had good Reading for Comprehension skills, and it came as a shock to get a pretty decent score on that particular section. After doing much research on how to get better on this subject, I have come to the conclusion, taking notes while I read is a must. I have always gotten the basics of a story, but the details have slipped through my brain. Missing four out of twelve was an amazing result for me and I am proud of the improvement since the last test where I missed a significant amount more.
I have learned many things from this final exam. These three sections I suffered from, I now know better than I ever would have before. I am looking forward to doing much better during the next semester!
