This new Harry Potter offering plays a little differently than Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone. One of the biggest differences is in how the spells are learned and how the Challenge after the lesson is handled. Chamber of Secrets has TIMED challenges. Your house point score is based on how quickly you complete the challenge. At the end of each challenge you will have a House Point Meeting where the leader in the point standings will have the opportunity to gather Bertie Bot's Everyflavor Beans against another clock. Another important difference is that, in Chamber of Secrets, you can REPEAT the challenge. This is where this Strategy Hint comes in. I have found it very effective to go through the challenge THE FIRST TIME as quickly as possible, ignoring all chests, armor, etc. Do only those tasks which result in getting a challenge star. When you have completed the challenge and attended the House Point Meeting simply return to the challenge course and, at your leisure, pick up everything else. Note that, while you can negotiate a challenge any number of times to try and improve your score, ONLY the first run-through is counted in the House Point Meeting.
