Thread: What do you do when you just cannot get past a lesson?

What do you do when you just cannot get past a lesson? I've spent four days on this stupid = lesson, and it feels like I just keep getting worse. I've tried increasing times, more tries at it. I just can't get past it. Having to stretch my finger out to the = sign, which is a key I've almost never needed to type in over 30 years of typing, is completely maddening and screws me up.

One thing that I have done that seems to help me is to use the "code groups" to reduce the number of different characters in the mix. By just concentrating on a smaller number of "problem" characters, I seem to lock them into my long-term memory (and get used the keyboard maneuvers) which then helps me move on to the next lesson.

I hope that helps.

I know how that feels! I could not get the letter "X" into my head for many days. And funny because there is only one dit difference between a "=" and an "X". It's symmetrical- you would think that would make it easier. But I guess not, or at least not in my brain. I just kept playing only the "X", and I would say "X" in my head, and the next time it played I would look at the "X" key on the keyboard, and the next time I heard it I would look at the "X" on the screen. Seriously I think I spent over a week on that character. The brain is a really, really odd thing. I wish I had some way to help you but really I just kept doing it over and over. But your frustration is a good sign, believe it or not. It means that you REALLY want to get it, and that's everything in this game.
