My Study Notes #
Welcome to my study area! A place where I can read, memorize, and review my current studies for different certifications. Keep in mind, that these are my notes, and not an exhaustive Study Guide. If that's what you want, buy a book. :)
My method of study is to:
- Read material
- Write down notes of material
- Re-write notes in Wiki
By reading the material, I can put things into context. By taking the time to write hand-written notes, I help burn it into short-term memory. At the end of the chapter/subject, I put them up on this Wiki for review later and to burn into long-term memory.
I know it seems like alot of effort, but it works for me. The more effort you put into a small amount of study, the easier it is to retain, and the greater the payoff. At least, for me, it is. Your mileage may vary. I have been out of the "academic" world for the last 10 years, concentrating on experience and the job. Now, it's time to invest in myself again.
Some notes are thorough and explainative, while others are just review. This is not a step-by-step guide to get CCIE or JNCIE or MASE, or <insert cert here>, just my notes on various subjects.
