Hence when reading a proving techniques proof. You read through them and then apply it to the text problems.

you should usually know everything required for the proof.

Hmmm... I disagree with that.

There are many proofs that have many spins on them that not that many people would have thought of it. In fact, usually only one person has thought of it.

If you are trying to prove an axiom you have much bigger problems than "looking ahead"When you're trying to prove a theorem, axiom or whatever,

Is your question about when trying prove theorem A and can't do it. It would be bad to just look up theorem A in a book?

So it's just like looking up a solution to a problem that you can't do. That is always not recommanded but compare to spending 3 or more hours doing that problem when you have other subjects as well, I would look up the solution. At least you can learn something from looking at the solution. But make sure you have a good go at the problem or proof first.
