I really dislike it when I am being tested in words that have not been taught yet, and there is no hint :(

That's the purpose of test - They test you if you really know the word that you don't need hints, and how much word you know disregard what they taught you.

Yes, but testing only works if you should have exposure first. Testing before someone has a chance to learn or prepare serves no purpose other than to discourage and frustrate. That is perceived as being unfair.

This is why taking away the vocabulary was such a big deal. At least you had a chance to prepare someone by reading that and the notes, and you could moreover keep that page open the first time you ran through the exercises.

So...now for "do you think you are lucky" DL now accepts the same expression--"Bạn có nghĩ bạn may mắn không"--that it rejected from me just five minutes ago when I was asked for a English-->Vietnamese translation.

Give me my lingot back. I figured it out. "You think you are lucky?" is different from "Do you think you are lucky?". The former implies a statement from a question and the latter is a pure question.

Attention to detail I missed... "Do you think..." and "You think..." do indeed require different translations. Duolingo correct.
