This form has thoroughly helped me progress in the field of science and mathematics. I want to thank the creator of this forum for helping me achieve a academic excellence in areas where I struggled the most, greatly.

These tips ring true. In my opinion, the key pieces of advice are: estimate solutions to ensure if your answer is in the ballpark; avoid changing answers hastily at the end unless you’re sure you’re wrong (I’ve made that mistake more than twice!); read questions slowly, methodically and translate into plain English.

My only recommendation would be to add something on the need of translating plain English into mathematical notation. When doing so, carefully identify what is known and not known, and assign variables accordingly. Many students I tutor struggle just as much with translating words into math as vice versa.
