Studying When studying doesn't help

    When studying doesn't help....

    What can you do? This is the case with my Computing/Complexity Theory class. There are no problems that involve memory, computation, or any algorithmic process. Having good insight is all that will help you. How do you prepare for tests in courses like this? I'm convinced that all I can do is just read and try to understand the proofs and reductions better and why they constitute as proofs, though it doesn't guarantee anything.

    Er.... welcome to the real world? :smile:

    Seriously, what you need to do is develop your insight... do all the homework that is assigned, and then some. If you see enough problems, you will begin to see how to attack them successfully.
