The Feynman technique
This is a great tool to spot gaps in your understanding:
- Choose a concept you want to learn and write its name at the top of a piece of paper.
- Pretend you are teaching the concept to someone who has no prior knowledge about it.
- Review your explanation. Identify weak points in your explanation and write it on the piece of paper.
- Simplify your explanation if you used lots of technical terms or complex language in areas of your explanation.
