Very good, you have met the requirements to participate in the D01 exams along with Jenni and Zafar in May.
Many other students are very close and will qualify once they submit their lesson #6 and or lesson #7 required pieces.

I am a beginner to sight reading and having hard time. There are 2 ways for me to do the exercises..

1. I can listen and read the sheet to "remember" the notes and rhythm and then play it by memory without looking at the sheet at all. This comes easier to me but feels like I am cheating.
2. I can play by "reading" the sheet and not from memory, and use a metronome to keep the tempo proper. This feels more mechanical and I am having much difficulty with this method. It is hard to look at the sheet , then connect music symbol to note to string/fret on guitar and play it while all of that is going on inside the brain and also listen to metronome and follow the beats as well.

so, the question is, is lesson objective for me to be able to just play the exercises (no matter how, e.g using the approach-1) or the lesson objective is for me to improve my sight reading (and being with metronome beats) and approach-2 is the appropriate way of practicing the exercises.

I know next session for the course will start in september but I'm planning to do D01 on my own... This will either prepare me better for D01 in coming september or I may be able to directly enroll in D02.


Thanks.

I would suggest to use method 1 combined with metronome (at least occasionally). Your sight reading will improve as you progress through the lessons, and the connection between the notes in the sheet and guitar fret board becomes more automatic. It is the actual playing technique that you should be focused early on. When using a metronome, make sure to set the tempo slow enough that you don't feel like it's rushing your playing.
