I'm going to reveal 10 learning techniques that I personally use to educate myself on complex topics in Science, engineering, technology, and mathematics! These are techniques that I've used for years now, and each of them is backed by Scientific literature. I encourage you to implement them in your learning journey to see if they work for you. We are now living in the age of information and the possibilities to learn anything are truly endless. Thus, learning how to learn is one of the most important skills to have, regardless of your career. Enjoy!

Thank you so much for what you do! I'm still new to your channel and this way of thinking. But I was wondering if using an AI to build an optimized curriculum for learning any given topic would be possible?
I love this video too much, added to favorites! Will reference when I need to kick my butt into shape again. Big props for helping us autodidacts. I feel like I learned more between dropping out of high school (16) and before rejoining school by 18, than I did at 18, private high school and uni 4-5 years after. Strange right? I need to find my autodidact mojo again, didn't realize you were that much of one. Big props man!
Why quit on it? Maybe redesign how your time and energy is spent and instead of dedicating 2 hours per day you can do 20 minutes? Sure, will take longer, but I think in the long run you will regret more never having tried.
I would say: regardless of the situation you may be in, do the best you can do with what you have; no more, no less.
I dropped out of university as well because I felt that I was learning WAY more by myself than at a school that's lessons were stuck in the past. Since dropping out things kind of got bad that I started to move away from the thing I used to love, writing code. I think it's got to do with my family not believing in me and still think that university is the way to go.
Anyway, an amazing opportunity came up that lit a fire inside of me and now I'm slowly getting back on the right track. I'm glad I stumbled upon this video. Thanks Siraj
I really liked this video. I think school is a GREAT place to learn but it is not the only place. Everyone should have a few subjects they are learning on their own and these optimisation techniques are great! Thanks!
Hi Siraj, is there a way to get the order in which to binge watch your videos? I've looked up quite a few already but each time it seems another one could have come before because the concepts they use are intertwined.
I am a speed reader that I can read 2 books in one weekend with the similar techniques. Siraj's video aligns with my speed reading practices. I share this video with many of my friends to tell them that I am not cheating or bluffing.
Since I am probably left with a summer of research and self learning, I wanted a better way to make sure it will work out, so I found your video very useful! Thank you
I have a question on distraction though: I found myself spending too much time managing the various learning resources (websites videos syllabi tutorials githubs). Now that avoiding multitasking on them and getting a 2h study frame per day are good practices to build a habit around, but any thoughts on this problem? Anyone experiencing the same?
I also want some change in my life... As i am in the tradition of old one froma long period of time how can i start to the change...And also i am the student can you help... You can reffer me the methods or information that will be more uself as it saves my time to fine one... And you videos is just amazing the complete full of information flow raidly from different dimensions of concepts...🌸🌸🌸
Michael Williams I have no idea about community college, I applied as a mature adult with work history/experience and a personal competency statement.
In my lead up I would say get your head around maths methods (Kahn academy is sweet). One of my first units is stats, which has a bridging course in maths.
A bit later I have two more units of maths…
Other than that, I don't have any advice so I hope someone else chimes in for you :)
learning is about putting out correctly. not putting in.
it aids putting in efficiently and effectively
it is curious that some people teach themselves like speak to them selves as they explain it to them selves
make notes what you want, and put them on visible place.
people forget the feeling that made them want something after 4 days.
memory is based on cholesterol Vesicles containing neurotransmitters. then brain rewire. it there was sleep.
external lipids (of cholesterol Vesicles ) is not a strong substance and it is washed out easily.after few days.
I'm a fan of your channel... but terms like "thought leader" and moving your hands and punctuating your speech in that stereotypical TEDtalk way... it's REALLY irritating. It undermines your credibility and makes you seem pretentious and scammy... even if it, at some point, was a good technique, it's now so overused and satirized that it really only makes you look foolish. I'm not trolling of just leaving a mean comment, I'm an actual fan and subscriber. Just trying to help. Your video kept reminding me of this:
Watching Something at 3x speed is not learning . 3x speed is good for revision when you have already learned it . the goal is to learn particular topic not watching it . learning is done through practise , asking question clearing underline concepts ,taking notes , involve in topic in some physical way ,
the point is if you not prepare right it fast time than rest of life you will be reparing it
I would like to add something. It's important to reactivate memories in order to reconsolidate them (stabilize them again). Memory strengthening has been proposed as one of the possible biological role of reconsolidation (by the way I'm researcher in neuroscience of memory). https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0928425714000448
Hi, boys. I have a Big Data doubt and I find this place the better to solve it.
Last January I taught a Big Data for Social Media course. Were 8 sessions of 2 hours each friday. The topic was basically how to extract, manipulate and present data from social media APIs like Facebook, Twitter, Google Maps, YouTube, etc, using R software. I set the total price of the course at 42 USD. I know was a bargain but was my first course and only for undergraduated students. What could be a "market price" for such course? Thanks in advance.
*1. Strongly believe in your learning ability*
*2. Create your own Curriculum*
*3. Avoid multi-tasking*
* to calm down your mind and thereby boost focus
*5. Constant Cardio*
by exercising during breaks
*6. Dependency Parsing* by filling the blanks you don't know
*7. Handwriting Notes* for better memory encoding
*8. Teach* like in Feynman technique
*9. Eat well* or don't even try
*10. Sleep well*
P.S.: Speed reading with such tools doesn't work and is debunked.
This video motivates me as i am studying Python, data science and machine learning nearly a month. I can get understanding if I practice with codes (which i dont understand them all).
Im not from comp science or math stats, but from social science disciplines and very much interest at this study. This video very motivates me.
If i could request you, please explain us in wich field that data science could be implemented.
Thank you Siraj
I really think it is indeed true that handwritten notes are important. It is analog and different from digital notes, but I find it sticks to my brain more when I use my hands. Thank you for the video!
In a time of increasing change and uncertainty, we must be clear on what will not change to not get distracted.
Strategic Portfolio Management.
1. Periodic evaluation and prioritization of the entire innovation portfolio.
2. Strategic and priority-based resource allocation.
On a strategic level, portfolio and resource management must be fully aligned.
3. Release and exit of innovation initiatives.

The Biggest Mistakes in Managing a Portfolio.
The Biggest Mistakes in Financial Planning Series.
by Harvey Jacobson, CHFC, MBA, CLU.
Investors who have remained consistent with their risk profiles through volatile markets have seen a substantial recovery in their portfolios since March 2009. Those who are truly behind are those who panicked and are now left with the decision of how to recover their losses. They can, but it is a much slower recovery.

When the right people on the right teams have the right context, they naturally do the right thing.
