In this part of the course we’ll go over some tips so you can make the most of your Real Python subscription and learn effectively.
Tip #1 is to go deep and immerse yourself in a topic you’re interested in.
00:00 In this section, I want to talk about How to Learn Effectively or, in other words, how to make the most of your Real Python subscription. Let’s jump right in. The first point I want to talk about is it is very, very important that you immerse yourself. Go deep, you know, do a deep-dive on one topic, stick to that one particular topic, and then combine all different types of content—for example, videos, written tutorials, and our interactive quizzes. So for example, if you wanted to do a deep-dive on Python decorators, you would simply type “decorators” into the Real Python search box and then work
00:37 your way through all the stuff that shows up. So, we’ve got a full-blown course here for you that you can watch on Python decorators specifically. It’s pretty long and really, really in-depth, so maybe you want to take your time with this and take it slowly.
00:51 But at the same time, when you have some, let’s say, downtime while you’re commuting or traveling, you could also work your way through our written tutorial on Python decorators. Again, here, you can take it section by section, so you don’t overwhelm yourself, but you can also really immerse yourself in this concept of Python decorators and really, really go deep.
01:13 We’ve got other courses here that touch on this subject that I would also recommend you watch because decorators and inner functions are closely related—we’re also surfacing that here—so this is another tutorial that I would encourage you to read if you’re looking at Python decorators.
01:42 Now, this maybe sounds a little bit intense, but it really works. If you can do it and you’re interested in that type of immersion learning, I would highly encourage you to make the most of all of our different types of content here on the website and to really leverage the different types of media that we have available for you.
