Independent Learning, Part Three

One of the outcomes of independent learning is that the student assimilates material more slowly than he would if he’d received the same information from a teacher. With independent learning, two tasks are proceeding simultaneously: mastering the subject and learning how to learn.

The latter is more difficult, but once it’s a habit, it’s impossible to dislodge. All future struggles are made easier by this self-reliance.
