Muddy cards- an MIT study technique to boost your studies

Recently learnt about a practice that MIT uses to teach the students
in graduate programs

I loved the simple concept and you can use the same to become a better

This is what happens.

Before the start of the class, all students pick a paper that is kept
at the door. At the end of the lecture they write one concept that is
still not clear to them. This is again collected by the professor and
he explains the muddy concepts to everyone.

How can you apply this. Keep your own muddy point folder!! After each
lecture jot down at max 3 points that you don't understand very well.

If there's time ask the lecturer or at your next self study session,
brings out those muddy points and look them in the text book.

The main point is to get those muddy points identifed and clear them
at the first opportunity before you forget and they accumulate.

Try applying this for your studies and let me know how things go.
