Understanding a subject is like having a mental model of that subject in your mind. And when you understand something, it is easier to retain it.
Active recall is when you're testing youself.
Studies found that hand written notes are better than typed written notes.
Know what works for you. If you think typing is best for you, then learn how to take note effectively using that system.
Understanding where a topic fits in the wider picture.
Ali Abdaal, a doctor and a YouTuber, likes to say, “Don't miss the forest from the trees.”
What this phrase means is that don't get too focused on a certain topic without understanding where it fits in the overall view. See it in the bird's eye view rather than in the worm's eye view to comprehend it better.
Feynman technique: being able to explain something or teach to a friend or to a 5-year-old what you've just learned.
After learning a topic, ask yourself:
A life-long learner, a writer, an artist, and a BS Psychology student
These ideas came from a skillshare class I recently took titled “How to Study for Exams - An Evidence-Based Masterclass” by Ali Abdaal. The class were divided into 3 sections namely 1) Understanding, 2) Remembering, and 3) Focusing. In this quick deepstash idea, I will try to summarize or simplify the 1st section: Understanding.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
