what's the best way to self-study? when i'm reading the cs/math books everything makes sense, but i can't seem to REALLY grasp the underlying principles and really move deeper. I'd hate to ask people questions and getting my hands held every couple pages just to double-check if i'm on the right track. am i just dumb? how do ya'll study and learn new concepts/theories? t-thx

That's a bit vague.
Anyway, after you have finished reading something, you can try solving the exercises at the end of the chapter. It can actually makes you deepen your understanding. Doing exercises is what you should have done anyway.
If you are not used to reading, then for most of the time, your thinking process will be really skewed and limited. There are things that can be seen only when you do exercise (i.e. work you brain more than reading).

Study high
Take test high
Get high scores

try to rederive the equations they come up with. Bonus point for deriving similar equations with slightly different conditions. You can't look at the book to do this. You have to fully understand every step you take

Study during a fearful situation, like when your fight-or-flight response kicks in.

You'll remember.

it's what i've been doing. that same recognizable mental state

you're flight and fight responses have been proven to kick in when you smoke weed. studying high actually makes you understand the material at a deeper level and remember exactly the reason why you needed to be fearful (the real problem).

thanks, sometimes in the beginning chapters the exercises are too "simple" so i skip them, and then they gradually get harder so i kinda lag behind, i'll try to be more thorough

>>7638823
thanks, what about for topics without equations? e.g. for networking it's mostly concepts instead of calcuations
