What doesn't kill you makes you stronger!

This is the material I have worked with the last year. The workbook is almost completely worn out. I accompanied me during a year on every train ride to and from the office. There never was a book that forced me to work as hard and continuously as this one!

The workbook without its cover.

The torn and worn out cover.

My notebook.

My notes.

I wonder how much exercises you solved in the first time correctly.

Did you only solved the exercises or took the lessons aswel?

I score between 75% and 80%. When I really have mastered a certain motive I sometimes score 100%. But there are also a few exercises in which I bottomed at 50%.

I followed the method recommended in the manual. First I studied a lesson in the manual, and after finishing this chapter, I would do the exercises in the workbook

On average I solve three exercises a week (36 positions). In the weeks in which I studied the manual I did 24 exercises. The latter to prevent me from rushing through the manual.
