80 Percent at 1452

Yeah. Passed the 80% milestone at CTS yesterday, in a session with roughly 90% at an average rating of 1450. Since I have made my move only if I am fairly sure that it is correct, my success rate has improved by more than two percent now. Also I have gained back 20 rating points.

Update: Today I did a hundred problem session with 94% success at an average rating of 1440.

mouse, congratulations. this is so awesome! i have been aware of your progress and always see you at CTS. 80.1% is really fabulous. 25,000!

fyi, at CTS i am inches from 84.00% (83.905%) at 16,900 and doing the next 8100 at 87.284% will be 85.00% by 31dec06 for 25,000. 12/88=100 88% or one in eight failed, but, of course, always try for 90..0% and sometimes get it, but, like wormstar wrote today, totally correlated with sleep and rest and renewal.

greetings from the pacific northwest usa.

Hey, dk, too much praise, for me 80% is far from fabulous. Just curious: where do you get all these digits after the decimal point? CTS does not show them, does it?

my older posts elaborate that. in short order, i track every problem with a loose sheet of paper.

lets say, first, with lots of math, i know where i am. or lots of simple arithmetic or tabulation. as i approach say, 83.93, i am getting really, really close to 83.40. yes, cts rounds off. i show as an actualy 84% right now, with rounding off.

so now as i tabulate, i already know where i am, but, if i were slightly off, say by some tiny error or set of errors, since i stop after each problem, as i approach a whole number or decimil, i am checking. then, when i hit 83.99, i am ready to take a close look after success, etc.

then, when it post 84.00, if i do, say, two problems, and then get the third wrong, now ill be 83.99, then i watch and see when the switch happens, back to 84.0, so will confirm my exact calculations.

today i am 2727f/14243s=16970 at 83.9305%. i go to google as my quick desktop calculator. 27f/142s=169 total (fail/success).

i have a girlfriend, she seems to like me the way i am, but, i promise you, im not your average joe as a PERSON.

warmly, david

I always thought myself to be a stats freak. Now I finally know what this means. For me, I am happy with what CTS tells me. My goal is to hit the 90% mark once later, therefore I do not care for decimal digits. But I can understand you, because even minute advances may be a source of pleasure.
