Stuff Not Sinking in?

Everyone gets mental blocks from time to time. Here is what I suggest:

1. If you are feeling overwhelmed then feel free to take a break. A day off can work wonders and you should be taking regular breaks.

2. Don't try to force information in. It never works! Let stuff sink in at the pace that is right for you. If it takes twice as long so what?

3. Make it fun. Read a bit and then see how much of it you can recite. Make memory jogger cards. Set yourself a competition to get certain marks and reward yourself when you get them.

4. Ask for help! If you get stuck then come on the forum and shout. If you are frustrated then tell us and if you finally get it let us all know as well.

Don't suffer in silence.

5. Attack your brain in many ways. Writing stuff out, reading it out, listening to recordings. Do hand on labs and take exams. Stop half way through an ACL exam and do an ACL lab.

6. Teach it. The only way you will truly know stuff is when you have to teach it to somebody else.

Tip # 6, October 5, 2011
By itguy25 - See all my comment or reviews    
If only tip # 6 could be burned and tatooed into the heads of so many of my counterparts at the workplace. They have this common fear of "tell to much, get replaced" type of additude. Im totally and COMPLETELY opposite. Uggghhh the frustration of that LOL. Anyhow all the tips are awesome and I can relate to the TEEEEE. Thanks for these and as a new member I look forward to the awesome amount of info to be recieved from the site. Thansk again....

Going back at it, and this will help!, September 13, 2011
By syberwired - See all my comment or reviews    
I have been putting this off long enough with excuses. I have started going back after my CCNA then CCNP, and this advise will hopefully help me to get through it. Before, I had done mostly reading, but am going to try to reinforce the reading with the labs, quizzes, and flash cards. This time I will pass the test! Thanks, Paul!

Just what I'm going through, November 16, 2010
By dmillbank - See all my comment or reviews    
I'm starting back my studies today, and feel exhausted, but the tips above will help me get through it. Reading my reasons why I'm doing this in the first place (that were written down before I ever started studying) is a great help actually.
