IIRC, some time ago somebody asked what are the easier quizes. Look up
the archives.

For me the following worked:

- working a lot with ruby (in fact, I worked with ruby fulltime for
several months)

- reading ruby-talk and/or ruby core, and ruby blogs (especially those
of zenspider, mauricio fernandez, eric hodel and some others)

- answering easy questions on ruby talk (i realized many nuances along
the way, small things that I didn't notice when I read the programming
ruby for the first time.

- reading ruby sources (optional ;-)

- reading other people's sources

- reporting bugs (I tend to dive deeper when I want to report a bug -
1. to see what's the cause, 2. to see whether there's a quick/obvious
solution)

There are many tricks that you can learn, ranging from various useful
library functions to the metaprogramming... Then you can learn about
ruby's limits and what can be done with them, etc...
