Learning Anti-Patterns

You’re interested in what not to do when learning.

-Spend too much time highlighting or creating concept maps.
-Repeat concepts you know very well.
-Blindly tackle exercises without first consuming the material.

Spending too much time marking text is often ineffective without recalling. Repeating what’s easy can give us an illusion of competence. Perform deliberate practice at the edge of your abilities to create a deeper understanding.
