    • Better Study Strategies By b4ckd00r (YGN Ethical Hacker Group)
    • Why use better strategies
      • What it takes to learn something from sources such as ebooks, presentation, web libraries ..etc
      • First you have to get it (=understand)
      • Then ensure you don’t forget it
      • It’s not about pushing facts into your head blindly
    • Nice Characters
      • Always start from beginner level when you approach to stranger technology/concept
      • This avoids lack-of-foundations problem in higher/more complex project
      • It takes time. Be patient!
      • Learn step-by-step unless you’re genius
      • E.g. Google : ‘Perl Beginner Level’
    • Use Analytical Approach
      • If it seems you can’t get most from a resource in spite of some long time learning, just drop it
      • Because language may be complicated or you need some background foundations
      • Not all ebooks suit to you
      • Not all ebooks are perfect
      • You must be smart enough which one is best to start
    • Starter Keywords
      • Demystified
      • How-to
      • QuickStart
      • Easy Guide
      • For Dummies
    • But …
      • They leave a great deal at start
      • If you want to learn something from scratch, take great care of choosing resources
      • This save your time a lot more later
      • Personally, I don’t use google for learning entire subject
      • Google surely gives inconsistent or random topics which make your mind a bit confused or make you lack of foundations
    • Basic Strategies
      • Various
      • Some apply to everyone
      • Two Basic rules - Recognition (memorization to elicit recall) - Understanding (represents deeper learning than recognition)
      • Using both makes your memory holds information longer
    • Make it visual
      • Images are far more memorable than words alone
      • Makes learning much more effective
      • Makes things more understandable
      • Put the words into or near the graphics
    • Make sure you recall
      • Whenever you have finished reading even one page or one chapters,
      • Recall what you have read
      • You must have missed points while your brain was idle
      • Recalling identifies any missed points of importance
      • Re-reading two or three times strengthens recalling power
      • It’s called incremental, developmental learning
    • Make Slide Shows
      • Make PowerPoint slides of what you have read in summarized form
      • It refreshes your memory when you review
      • It helps your colleges who follow your path
      • It’s worthy of time comsuming
    • Macro & Micro Strategies
      • Prepare an outline that covers all objectives of your particular area (or exam)
      • An outline provides two approaches to studying.
      • First, you can study the outline by focusing on the organization of the material.
      • Work your way through the points and subpoints of your outline, with the goal of learning how they relate to one another.
    • Macro & Micro Strategies (II)
      • Next, work through the outline, focusing on learning the details. Memorize and understand terms and their definitions, facts, rules and tactics, advantages and disadvantages, and so on.
      • In this pass through the outline, you should attempt to learn detail rather than the big picture
    • Active Study Strategies
      • Process of writing down and defining objectives, subobjectives, terms, facts, and definitions promotes a more active learning strategy than merely reading the material does
      • Writing forces you to engage in more active encoding of the information
      • Simply reading over the information leads to more passive processing.
    • Common-Sense Strategies
      • Follow common-sense practices when studying
      • Study when you are alert, reduces or eliminates distractions
      • Take breaks when you become fatigued.
