    don't you think it's a bit late to "start"? :)
    in this case simply looking through past problems and solutions could help you.

    Plz dun tlk n AIM speech. (My cousin picked up alot of his english from playing video games online. His english isnt too bad, but he had some teaching in vietnam before he came. Using all of those abbreviations is ok on instant messaging but please try not to use it unless you dont really know the difference from Plz, in that case you should review your english.)

    I didnt even know that there was a Physics Olympiad. I'm guessing its like the olympics in physics? I haven't taken high school physics so I wouldnt know. memorizing the equations and the vectors involved is one thing but having a really deep understanding of why those equations are in that form would set you apart

    I just happened to look at this post I made about 5 years ago and it's funny seeing how sloppy I was. :-)
    Ki Man: Having spent a few years online, I now understand where you're coming from. These days, I find random abbreviations irritating even in IM/sms. :D
