## Main Question or Discussion Point

So I am an engineering graduate trying to teach myself some general relativity.

I have tried to solve the Einstein Field equations for a wormhole metric and some others.

After pages and pages of calculating Christoffel Symbols, Riemann Tensors, Ricci Tensors and Scalars, and so on, I end up with a mess that is not correct.

Is there a simple metric(s) I could start with that is less messy?
