    Geometry has always been my weakest area, I understand everything but I always seem to lack the creativity to spot the solution.

    Any advice?

    Practice loads of geometry. Try and explore what happens when you change certain things in a problem. Start generalising stuff when you had a good understanding of what is happening. It's little things like that which allow you to quickly spot solutions just by inspection.
