It’s not like school is it? (No lumpy pink custard for starters!), but to be serious; what I have found helped me (after a 30 year gap in formal education) was to look at the bigger picture and try to work out how my studies fitted in to what I was studying. Knowledge of a subject is essential but understanding how that knowledge works is vital, let’s take driving a car for example: we know that if we turn the steering wheel the road wheels turn, but it is not until we understand the amount we have to turn the wheel, do we make the car turn as we intend. Understanding may come with experience, as there are many things we already know about the subject, and it is not until we have gained a deeper insight into the subject that understanding can develop. But a fundamental understanding will lead to greater knowledge and further understanding. Look at your subject and the topic of immediate study and step back and look at how it relates to the whole. If you don’t understand... Ask
