- Study how to study. Spend some time learning some study techniques (note-taking, flashcards, improving reading speed etc.) to help you study smart.
- Don’t try to understand everything. Return to the same subject multiple times, each time understanding a little bit more.
- Know the lay of the land and know the players. When you read someone’s work, check out the bibliography, if any. This will help pin-point some key works and key authors in the field.
- Learn the lingo. Each field has its own vocabulary. Learn it to lower what seems to be an impenetrable wall into the field.
- Big words have small meanings. Don’t be afraid of big words. Once you understand what it means, it’s just a matter of getting used to them.
