  • It has 4 steps:
    1. Choose the subject you want to learn.
    2. Try to explain what you know to a 12 years old child.
    3. Identify gaps in your explanation. If you're struggling to explain clearly, go back to the material.

  • You're understanding something, not only learning the names of something.
