Learning from textbooks or learning from open courseware (such as MIT's proper courseware)

Which is better?

inventing your own methods like a fucking genius instead of being some fuckboy lapping up the genius of others

Textbooks

This. If you can't independently derive the laws of motion and thermodynamics and quantum mechanics using nothing but a 1kg block and the Calculus, you'll never get anywhere in science.

It's all text. Fucking, just read it all.

Why not both?

Use a textbook with the course dummy.

You know you can just go to lectures at a university, right? If you ask the professor if you can sit in their class and learn for no credit, they most likely wont have a problem with it. They might not even care if you're a student at the school or not.

Education is completely in the hands of the student. If you fail to take advantage of it, it;s on you.

>>7779993
both
>>
>>7779993
Best is to use both. Use the lectures/course notes/problems from OCW and try to use the same textbook recommended for the course as a reference or for extra problems.
>>
>>7779993
both, but sadly there's no lectures for advanced courses. you're going to have to transition into just textbooks / articles eventually
>>
>>7780092
For physics there is.
