Here's what worked for me: sit down and study the topic at hand. Read through the main concepts and ask yourself: why does this make sense? Once you have convinced yourself do problems. Do lots and lots of problems, till it's almost second nature.

Make sure that you understand the techniques and approaches used. Try to form a general idea of how (and when) to apply the various ideas, that you can use on a larger class of problems.

be perfect with your basics first.
whatever topic you choose to study, do it from the beginning and ask yourself questions like how and why
if u can answer them, your basics is good. u can move ahead
and if u can't, try to know the answer.

I am good at math(probably one of the best at my highschool), but in the big or medium picture I am not that good at math. The things that made me better at math are: doing a lot of it, taking harder classes with older kids and adults, and attempting to teach myself. I figure it took years for calvin to become brilliant at math, but maybe some people are just born that way.
