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.
