This is more of an opinion question:
I'm working on Verifying Identities but I always have trouble knowing where to start. Once my teacher points it out i'm like "oh, duh" but on my own I have not the slightest idea on how to begin these; especially the tricky ones. Does anyone have any tips/tricks they use to verify identities??

2. Unless I recognize some well-known identities, I try to change everything to sines and cosines.
