|1) Immerse yourself in the problem|
|2) No, list the topic areas the question refers to.|
|3) List all the information in the question - Initial Conditions.|
|4) Now do you recognise the question? Have you done one like it before?|
5) No, don't worry. Now you need to FIND AN INSIGHT.|
Close your eyes. YOUR HEAD IS SPINNING.|
I know this one. Why can't I start? Exams, I hate exams. This always happens. I've always done my work, I come to the exam and I can never do it. And that lazy fool - choose your own name - always does well.
QUIETLY STOP YOUR HEAD SPINNING. Do the EXAM BREATH a few times, and calm down. If you are practiced your mind will stop spinning quickly. Ignore the question and calm your mind.
Are you calm? Now think about the question, and look at the initial conditions. Do you have an insight in how to start? |
|6) No, go on to the next question. Don't waste any more time. If you have calmed your mind the next question will be easier.|
|7) Don't forget about the question, COME BACK TO IT LATER. When you can't do any other questions come back to this one, quite often the insight will come.|
