I'm preparing a guide for my students and I want to put a symbol before the item’s symbol in the enumeration of the exercises for indicate that this exercise is more difficult, very similar that the math's books.

For example:

  1. blah

  2. blah

(*)3. blah

    Just use \item[(*)3].

\begin{enumerate}
\item 
Easy
\item 
Easy
\item [(*)\stepcounter{enumi}\arabic{enumi}.]
Hard
\item
Easy
\end{enumerate}

You will probably want to use an optional argument of \item as a short definition, e.g.

\def\Hitem{\item [(*)\stepcounter{enumi}\arabic{enumi}.]} % Hard item.
