Here is a dilemma I have been always faced with over the course of my learning chemistry, and perhaps other studies.
For me there are two ways of learning something (for the sake of this discussion) : 1. Go over the whole subject as quick as possible, and afterward come back to focus on specific topics.
- Focus on specific topics along the way
I often went onto Wikipedia for help to understand some topics on chemistry, but then there are always terms in that particular explaination that I had never heard of. I was tempted to click on the link, but also afraid that I might waste too much time on that.
