The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Tips

Massive Smithing Leveling
You need around 1000 Gold for this. Simply go to any Smith selling Iron Ingots and Leather Strips. The first building on the right as you enter Whiterun is best for this. Purchase as many Iron Ingots as you can and equal Leather Strips. Then go and build as many Iron Daggers as you can. You will increase your Smithing Skill by 1 for every dagger you make. This can mean levelling your skill up by as many as 20 points in under 10 seconds! Then, sell the Daggers to back, and repeat with the money you have remaining. Whilst you aren't going to be able to do this for unlimited times (as the store will run out of Ingots/Strips eventually and you don't gain as much profit from the sell-back, it is a great tactic to very quickly level up your skills.
