Yesterday I have started a new course at Coursera. This time about learning. #

Learning How to Learn: Powerful mental tools to help you master tough subjects
by Dr. Barbara Oakley, Dr. Terrence Sejnowski #

One of the most interesting ideas come from a short list that is in the center of reading materials: 10 Rules of Good Studying. Idea that was also one of most important one in the newsletter of Scott H. Young.

What is it? **Use a recall. After you read a page tell to yourself what it was about. **

When I think about it I know that I used this method at school at it worked wonders. Bad thing about graduation is that I lost most of the context, deadlines and subjects to learn that were given to me. Even after I went back to learning I forgot about my most important methods.

Another simple and great idea form the course is Pomodoro. This simple technique makes it super easy for me to work. Without it, I procrastinate a lot. There is always email to check, RSS, Twitter you name it. Homework #2: Use Pomodoro!
