I stumbled with this resource today and thought it could be helpful for other people.
Some have been discussed here, and you can see how the zettelkasten integrates in a couple of them.
Thanks for providing this video and I think the video provides more
thoughts that I could work with my post in this forum.
Cramming can be effective. By forcing a learning process into a narrow
time duration, a learning agent is more focused. The issue is that
there is no gap for diffuse mode for building high-level relationships
and it is hard to do it consistently. Ideally, a learning agent should
cram his study from day one to judgment day. Most of cases, a learning
agent does cramming at the very end of a deadline. The gap between the
idealized situation and a realistic one can be explained by the 3rd
law in habit building, i.e. make it easy. If a learning agent knows
that a learning process only requires a very small amount of effort,
the chance is higher for him to sit down and study.
If the focus is always on the same content, the mind will form habits.
As a result, it is harder for a learning agent to create new ideas
out of an old one. A type of mental model can easily tell from one
topic but hard to tell from others. By switching the context, one
could generate new ideas that the learning agent learns from other
topics. The issue is what topics should a learning agent put together
and what is an optimal duration for switching?
Ask and answer questions is a well-known technique and there are many
ways a learning agent can do it in practice.
Whenever a learning agent learn a new thing, trying to find a real
world example would enhance the learning agent's understanding. The
issue is that when you learn something that there is no real world
example, e.g. quantum mechanics, how should a learning agent learn
One way to deal with learning an abstract subject is to visualize your
understanding. Although there are fewer concrete examples in learning
quantum mechanics, a learning agent can use this technique to create
The takeaway message is to take as many practice tests as you could
and make practices as versatile as possible.
