Hey guys (and girls),
I'm posting this because I have hit a road block and I have no idea how to proceed. I've been doing problems on Brilliant for a few months now and don't seem to be making much progress. In fact, over the past month or so I've fallen into a pattern so predictable it's almost like clockwork:
I'll solve the first 2 questions for each topic (Algebra, Number Theory, Combinatorics) very easily. Sometimes even in a matter of seconds. Then, problems 3 and 4 will completely stump me. Then when I give up and go to check the solution, it often turns out I wasn't even on the right track. It's REALLY frustrating.
Anyone have any ideas about how to get past this?
I'm not sure that just "doing more problems" is going to help much on its own, since I've been stuck on the same level for three months already.
