Hi, I have a Physics textbook, it is fairly simple. I can easily answer all it's question without too much difficulty and basically understand the concept. The moment I sit for an exam or attempt past papers I am unable to solve multiple questions. I can do around 75% of the paper but then there are trick questions about some topics that we have not been fully introduced to. For example the teacher gave us a question, Q1 from the 157774-november-2012-question-paper-31 which I attached below. I was able to answer part (a) and (b) of Q1 but part (c) we had not really done in class so I was utterly confused and could not answer it. No one in my class could either. This isn't the only time something like this has happened. It happens time and again where I reach a question outside my comfort zone and actually apply myself and do it. Do not get the wrong sense, I am fairly smart, I usually come in the top 3 in almost all subjects. I just am unable to grasp the skill. The questions in the textbook are way too simple, and exam questions are leagues beyond. Is there a way I can improve my problem solving ability? Any books I can buy? Any websites or videos? Anything at all? Please help, I have exams next week and I am becoming tense. Thank you, AN.
