About This Item

Puzzle Solving 101

This TB is not physically contained in the Puzzle Solving 101 Series Final Exam cache. If you actually do find the Final Exam, you don't need to log a find on this TB. But if you are solving this series of puzzles remotely, this TB is for you.

The only way to obtain the tracking number for this TB is to solve all nine of the puzzles in the PS101 Series, and the first six puzzles of the PS101 Final Exam. On the final puzzle page, there will be a verification question for your solution to the 9 puzzles in the series. Enter your verification information, and you'll receive the tracking number for this TB.

To record your accomplishment, log a Discovered note on this TB. Only log Notes and Discovered entries for this TB. Do not remove this TB from the PS101 Final Exam cache! Other types of entries will be deleted without warning.

Congratulations to all who have completed the series! And good luck to those who haven't ... yet ;-)

Wow! What a fun trip this has been! I can't believe that I got through this series all on my own. There definitely were times I wanted to quit and forget the whole thing, but I always found a way to get the answer and move onto the next mind bending challenge. This is unquestionably my most memorable TB discovery ever! Thank you so much for putting this series together. Maybe one day I'll get down to south Florida again and sign the log of the final exam. For now though, since I live in Charlotte, I'll be happy to put my name on the log of WINSLMA's cache.

Wow! It took me almost a year - moving through certain puzzles surprisingly quick and chipping away at others on and off over a few months - but I finally finished all of the puzzles in this series! Too bad I’m not in my hometown of Miami anymore, otherwise I’d brave the northbound traffic and grab the final hide, but I’ll settle for discovering the remote solver TB from my couch in New Jersey. Maybe I’ll swing by next time I’m down there for a visit.

Can’t say enough good things about ePeterso2 - his sense of humor with the lessons and puzzles and responsiveness to my messages begging for help made the whole experience pleasant, if not maddening to the point of nearly committing myself at times. You sir, are a gentleman and a scholar, and I thank you for helping me be a better puzzlehead!

What an adventure! I found out about the Puzzle Solving 101 series when I was working on Geodyssey, and I have greatly enjoyed reading through the lessons and solving the puzzles. I have an opportunity to visit in a few weeks, so I wanted to finish the final exam before we head out on our road trip. I got all the way to the final question before getting stumped, and the CO provided a gentle nudge to get me across the finish line. Many thanks to the CO for a great set of puzzles, and I look forward to signing the log next month!

I am so glad I finished this. It was extremely difficult but I loved the puzzles, well all except the math one. I am very grateful to be able to log this remotely but I still plan on making my way to Florida to actually find the caches. Thanks for the challenges.

Thrilled to have completed! What a challenge, but what great fun. This was an AWESOME series. Thanks so much for all the hard work you put into these caches!

Planning to make a second caching day-trip to Charlotte, was not able to get to all of my target caches the first time. Searched for some more to (over)fill the day, stumbled upon GC1MH0T, and the quest began. Two days later, while ostensibly working much of the time, a non-gibberish result to the final presidents question began to reveal itself. Getting through this (almost) makes me feel that I can remove some of the many Question Marks taunting me from my 'not found' map.

I learned of this series from a cacher in Ohio, and so set to work on completing this series. I love working on puzzles, and this was an excellent series covering a wide variety of puzzle styles. I started with #10, and got stuck most of the way through. After coming back to it a bit later, I completed the last few steps until I needed the information from steps 1-9. From there, I worked back in chronological order, finishing the last 3 this week. Thank you for a fantastic series!

I re-discovered the PS101 series a couple weeks ago. Turns out back in 2012 I had made it to Lesson 5, got stuck, then forgot about it. But after recently completing the Geodyssey, my travels led me back here and the time seemed right to try and finally pass the final exam.

Unfortunately, those four years' time did not really clear up my thinking because I still remained stuck on Lesson 5 after mulling it over the holiday break. I suspected I might be over-thinking things, so sent my thoughts to the CO. He confirmed half of my thought process was correct and that I should probably do a little more digging. Soon enough, I had too-good-to-be-true information which quickly led to the solution. Lesson 6 was a nice exercise in patience. It sat open on my desktop for a couple days until I finally made the connection. Loved the description and the Happy Fun Ball-like disclaimers. What a nice series! And I'm excited that moving forward I am all signed up to receive any future puzzlehead news.

I will be in South Florida next month and plan to find some ePeterso2 caches. Don't think I'll have enough time to physically visit the PS101 final, but who knows... Thanks again for the fun puzzles!

It took us 5 days but we did it. After having celebrated the new year properly, we tackled the presidents. The last step was a formality as our homework had already been done for the nine other caches. A great log to begin the geocaching year with. Thanks a lot for this series, we really enjoyed. We hope to be able to physically log the caches. Happy new year
