Preemptive Thought Execution

One great way to improve the speed at which one solves problems especially on standardized tests is to perform preemptive thought execution. Preemptive thought execution is presolving basic parts of the problem in question, you will first have to "predict" what type of calculations may be needed and perform them before we start the problem.

Our prediction should be guided by the content of the problem, we should quickly think back to similar problems and presolve portions of it. Though some of our "presolutions" may not be needed it will greatly increase the speed at which the problem is solved.

Preemptive thought execution was dervied from the preemptive code execution technique used in Intel CPU's.
