Motor Course Study Tips
The ability to absorb and retain new material has limits. So that you don't hit those limits, here are some tips:
Understand that you are fully capable. Just about everyone gets stuck at a point or two. Don't worry, that light bulb will go on (probably the next day). Just complete the study for the day, but come back to it on your next session. None of this material is out of your reach.
Set up a study schedule. When first setting out, many students are eager to learn. The first day or two, they'll sit down with the books all evening. Or they'll watch every video. Then, after "trying to drink from a firehose," that energy goes away. Decide how much time you want to spend each day, and schedule it in. By each day, we don't mean that you must study seven days a week. Many university courses are set up for three classroom session a week (M-W-F), or even two (T-Thu). Map out a schedule that works for you and allows you not to neglect your family or other duties; then you'll be able to stick with it.
Don't rush. Relax and enjoy the learning experience. You'll actually learn faster that way than if you try to cram.
Keep your goal in mind. As you study, it's good to occasionally remember why you study. Those who are enjoying the study of electrical basics usually have another goal they want to reach, such as becoming an electrical journeyman or an industrial maintenance tech. Thinking of this goal can help you stay with your program.
