Aaaarghh!!! Not those 7 circles again!
I'm doing high rated problems at CT in sets of 50 at the time.
I'm trying to work out why I keep missing them and try to take measures to prevent to miss them in the future. Of course I want to test that so I do the circles in a slow way a second time after a while.
Since I missed a lot the second time too, it is not unlogical that at a certain moment I want to test the same problemset a third time in slow fashion. Since even the third time I miss a few I know I will have to do them a fourth time slow to get them all right.
And if I have them all right, it is logical I want to ingrain the patterns and speed them up. What do you think, would doing them 3 times at full speed be enough? I hope so.
At the moment I started a new series of 50. I want to know if my method has any effect when I encounter new problems. Since I scored the old problems at 0% during the first circle, any progress will be substantial. I will keep you posted.
