Skills Booster for Linux Pemula

Reading for a purpose, especially in learning linux step by step using textbook or e-book Linux Guide. Perhaps many of us are involved in this kind of learning. Most student (I myself and you) Linux try to read text books and scholarly articles in the same way they read novels and short stories: We start at the beginning and read straight through. Since an average text book is more difficult and less exciting than most fiction. Student often come to the end of a text book chapter and then realize they don't remember much of what they've read. So, how we can read a textbook in a way that will improve our concentration in learning Linux efficiently. Reading speed and memory of what we've read? the key word is "PQW3R": Preview, Question, Write, Read, Recall, and Review.
Well,pals! here they are Reading for a purpose:
Preview both the entire book and the individual chapters. This will give us a mental overview that helps we read more effectively. Reading textbook without previewing is like going on a trip without looking at the map: we'll easily get lost.
Formulate questions about the material we've just previewed. Make up some questions based on the subheadings. For example, after reading the first major heading in this post (assume it is a textbook), we might ask question like, Why does Linux is so important for our bright future? What does Linux take to read more and forget less? Questioning improves our studying because it focuses our attention on looking for answers. Knowing what we're looking for arouses our curiosity and keeps us alert.
Read the first section of the material we've previewed and made questions for. Do not underline or make notes, unless we suddenly have a thought that's too important to lose. Look for the answers to our questions and for any important ideas. Always read for ideas; do not read sentence by sentence unless the material is so difficult that we can't understand it in any other way. When we've finished, stop and try to answer the questions we ask ourselves.
Let's get the ball rolling! see Linux Beginner Guide, Free online Linux's Books for the best practice.
