GREAT advice. This is exactly the outlook Bar/Bri recommends to pass the bar exam. For maximum effectiveness make a record of every error you make, even in outline form where it makes sense to do so (topics/subtopics, etc). Don't just write down the mistake, but what the correct response would have been and why. Review the list on a regular basis to ingrain the "solutions" and reasons for them into your thoughts.
