I literally saw a person who's been a user since May 2013 and has already solved 300+ problem! Considering at extreme that the person solved every problem for the past 8 weeks, that gives us 8(8+8)=128 problems solved. I also remember that this person is level 1 at the physics portion, so that shouldn't have a large effect. In addition, I personally tried the practice problems to see if those problems count and they don't. So how is this possible?

I think somehow practice problems are counted. I joined brilliant in April but had done 520 problems, you join brilliant in February but only solved 309 problems. The only difference is the number of practice problems solved.

Practice problems are counted. There are occasionally people who sign up and devour the practice section, racking up huge problems solved stats very quickly.
