1. Achieve a deep understanding of the concepts. Understand the ‘how’ or ‘why’ the concept is such, instead of memorizing the steps.
2. Practise a few routine or basic questions to build foundation, speed and accuracy.
3. Attempt challenging or a variety of problems. Instead of doing all the questions in the practice paper, you can attempt only those that are challenging or different.
4. Compare your solution with the solution provided. Is it correct and as elegant as the provided solution? Can you think of alternative solutions?
5. Produce your own summary notes which can be used for quick revision. It is like producing your own secret manual after all the training and challenges.
6. Teach your peers. The more you teach others, the better you become.
