Chemistry skill Edit
Boil Dirty water, till you can make bone glue grab your water and rags (see sew skill training) and head to the train for bones and make bone glue.
Cooking Skill Edit
Find kill and fry all the rats you can find. Then make sure you get some salt and make Tailed Cutlets.
Generally just keep cooking everything you find. killing animals and cooking meet cutlets and Ukha (fish soup) and mushroom soup are good too.
Once you get to level 3 just keep going you will slowly grow till hopefully close enough by the time you need the level 7 and 8
Forging Skill Edit
Scrapping Nails is one of the most efficient ways to increase this skill as they are fairly common and can be made from skill level 1 and a forge. they can be scrapped in lots of 50 (50 x 3 nails = 150 nails) so that 50 XP and it is fast compared to crafting
Mechanical Skill Edit
resources and sometimes tools for this are hard to find heaps of or make so break down anything your find, Cars, Bicycles, weapons this need no pre-requisite level required. if you have a vehicle always keep it repaired so you don't break dnow and also get XP for Mechanical skill
if you can make self weapons them do that. Early find heaps of flint wood bone glue (see Chemistry/sew skill training) and make heap of knives or axes but you may want the nails for forging skill.
Also make shelter of branches at every stop on your travels will help this skill and make you rest faster. just knock it down.
Medicine Skill Edit
Getting hurt is a way but people prefer to use bandages. even when you are healthy bandages will add 1 XP per use and all you need to do is use them. so make a whole pile and sit down and practice.
Sewing Skill Edit
Ripping cloth and clothes is the best way so every item you find rip it down (unless you wear them). you can use the cloths for making bone Glue (see Chemistry/Mechanical skill training) or you can make Swathing cloth for feet or self made hat (best for XP Rag ratio) then just rip them down again (you will slowly lose rags but you get XP
