    I don't know whether you should learn this method. It'll likely make you forget how trig equations work.
    Oh, I am in my first year of college so is that uni stuff?

    No but it gets you learning general formulas for the all solutions of a trig equation and you'll either not understand them in the first place, or you'll understand at first but seen as you're just applying algorithms over and over again you'll forget how the trig functions work. I'd stick to what you're doing now and try to understand it before doing anything else.
