Strategies to retaining textbook information?
This is a pretty noob question but I am hoping to optimize my time studying.. In general my go to for learning is educational videos but I want to be able to utilize books more though. Would this strategy look ok?
1) Read cover to cover copy pasting selected segments/key ideas into your notes to review later
2) Make flashcards out of the notes
3) Go through the flashcards once in the morning and once at night for x amount of weeks (hoping for long term memory)
4) Recite the information from the flashcards into your own words for x amount of weeks (to get comfortable speaking about it in person w/ others. (personal goal))
5) Rinse and Repeat
Any advice is appreciated as I have started to study for the CCIE written which is a lot of text!
