Better Study Strategies

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