Circle 2.2 Finished

Only went up three percentage points in my success, but in my third mini-circle I think the answers are starting to pop out a little more. I predict that by mini-circle five I'll be at 100% correct.

Also, I went through the first problem set again, but this time reversing colors. If I really know the patterns, it shouldn't matter whether the board is rotated, reflected, and projected on the moon. I want to answer the problems fast from all perspectives. I'm going to incorporate this into my mini-circles. Once I am so good at a problem set that I get cocky, I'll switch up the board to bring myself down to Earth.

That's a good idea. Let us know if it makes a difference.

Is there a significant decrease in the amount of time it takes to do the problem set the 2nd (or 10th) time through?

Loomis, things get much faster. The first couple of times through, I give myself around two minutes to figure out a problem. Eventually I can do a hundred problems in fifteen minutes. It isn't until I am doing them really fast without thinking that I consider them learned.

Ah. . .very good, young padawan. The beginning of Wisdom is the end of your mind. . .

Don't ask me WTF that is supposed to mean [grin]. . .

Good deal...I do the same thing with my "mini-circles." I do them 10-15 times and start changing them up after the first few times through. By the time I've gone through them 10+ times, I am generally able to solve each one in <5 seconds regardless of reversed colors, inverted board, mirrored board, etc. I find that I know them far better this way than if I only go through them in their "original" form.
