As we head into exam and lab report time, a reminder, borrowed from the Wikipedia page for this fascinating study:

"Kruger and Dunning proposed that, for a given skill, incompetent people will:
  1. tend to overestimate their own level of skill;
  2. fail to recognize genuine skill in others;
  3. fail to recognize the extremity of their inadequacy;
  4. recognize and acknowledge their own previous lack of skill, if they are exposed to training for that skill"
Remember, when I say "you should have asked for help", what I mean is, "you should have asked for help."

You're certainly paying for it, even if you're not using it.

Let me explain again:

Ask for help!

This isn't rocket science.

Unless of course, you're in Physics 1 lab.
