Attention grad students!

Do you have advice on how to succeed mathematically? What do you wish you had done/known when you were an undergrad, but didn't?

Let's hear your best secrets!

experience doesn't come cheap. How much are you willing to pay?

Whenever I solve one of Mohammad's problems using your advice, I'll give you half of the profits. Surprised

I meant giving you advice on mohammad's problem. You should give me advice on those. I have faith that you will solve his problems and then come to me with the money and then I can give you some advice about life Smile

On a more serious note, I wish I had spent more time as an undergraduate and learned more of different kinds of math. I spent most of my time doing research rather than learning and I entered the phd program very early. I kind of regret that. I think it is important to do things in the right order, whatever that means, and take your time to learn as much as you can!

Yes, I see what you mean by that. I used to do the same thing before I started my undergrad (though in my case I wouldn't call it research), and while I'm sure it helped me get a good grasp on certain things by getting to know them "personally", I didn't begin understanding things systematically until fairly recently.

Good advice my friend! I don't see why you should regret any of it though - it's not like it's ever too late to learn as much as you can.
