You’re interested in a number of best practices that can help you learn and study.
• Step back and re-check your understanding of the material.
• Work with other like-minded people who are willing to critique your work.
• Don’t blindly believe in your intellectual abilities.
Working with colleagues and mentors can have a profound effect on your learning. This is because other people are more likely to spot your errors, explaining yourself to others helps you understand more, and studying with a team helps you identify items you may have missed.
