General series question

  1. Jan 4, 2007 #1
    I just started studying series and I was curious if there is any way to recognize the types of series i.e.(harmonic, geometric, telescoping etc.) without writing out the first five or so parts of the series. What strategies do some of you use when identifying the types of series?

    Practise lots of different questions and then it will become a lot easier and intuitive.
