Today I'm halfway the 7 circles with 35,000 done of 70,000
I'm starting to recognize the problems.
That doesn't mean that I remember always the solution, but that I realize "hey, I've seen this one before."
I have done some counting and 32 % of the problems look familiar.
The rating stays level but the succesrate has crawled up with 0.9 % to 79.9 % !
I just can't force myself to gamble so I take my time with every problem.
26 % of the problems are solved by pattern recognition alone.
The same in other words:
From the 10,000 problems in the problemwindow:
3,200 problems look familiar
2,600 patterns are stored in my system
5,400 problems I have to calculate
2,000 problems make me fail.
An increase of 0.9 % in succesrate means that I solve 90 problems more than before.
circle 0: 1470

circle 3: 1520
