I have not been formally diagnosed with ADD but I know I have it. I had the same problem with a simple algebra class. I kept dropping the class for fear of failing it. I finally passed it because I got a professor who gave partial credit for incorrect answers. If it was obvious that a student made a simple addition mistake in a complicated equation but clearly understood the correct process for obtaining the answer he would take a few points off. This partial credit helped me actually pass the damn class. Previously professors would mark the entire answer incorrect.
