The Feynman Technique

When your knowledge of something is full of complex explanations and terms taken from textbooks, you're less likely to grasp it.

You end up memorizing something exactly as it's written in a book or as the teacher explained it to you, so it doesn't take long for this knowledge to disappear.

This is where the Feynman technique comes in.

2) Explain The Topics In Your Own Words.

Explain the concept in your own words as if you were trying to teach it to a child. When trying to break things down into simple ideas with simple vocabulary, you'll realize whether or not your knowledge of the subject is sufficient.

This makes it easy to identity any gaps in your knowledge.

3) Go Back To Study Material When You Get Stuck.

When you can explain the subject in simple terms, only then will you understand it. This means the knowledge will stick with you and not disappear.

Review your notes and study material for anything that you still don't understand and try to explain it to yourself in an easy way.

CURATOR'S NOTE

The Feynman technique can be used to learn anything. It was devised by Nobel laureate Richard Feynman. The idea is that when you can teach something in the simplest way possible, you will master it. This technique has 4 steps.
