### PS General Strategy?

by cbenk121 » Sat Oct 10, 2009 8:41 am
Hey all,

I wanted to see if anyone had a general approach worked out for PS. This site had an interesting article the other day about two hypothetical high scorers who had a general approach for PS problems.

I have an approach for DS and SC, but not PS. Currently, I read the problem, and an approach will quickly come to mind or it doesn't. When it doesn't, the problem can take more than 2 minutes, forcing me into a guessing scenario. Furthermore, knowing that there's these problems that are difficult, I rush through those problems where the approach comes quickly, making a stupid mistake more likely.

Any ideas? Thank you.
