Core Concepts and Putting it in Practice

“It is important to view knowledge as sort of a semantic tree — make sure you understand the fundamental principles, ie. the trunk and big branches, before you get into the leaves/details or there is nothing for them to hang on to.

Group study and discussing with peers organically involves summarization and reflection. This comes with the added bonus of learning takeaways from multiple perspectives.
