How I Study: A cloud-enabled strategy to gain understanding

As a wireless engineer, I try really hard to embrace Mobility.  Even in my studies, Mobility is something I focus on.  I felt it was time to describe my self-learning process of study after showing some engineers at work some of the ways I use mobility to enhance my study process.  The problem with learning is that you need to do things to reinforce what you are learning.

“I hear and I forget. I see and I remember. I do and I understand." -Confucius

The point of studying and taking certs is to raise your understanding in a particular technology set.  Since this is self study, you can replace "hear" with "read."  Remembering is not the goal, but an understanding of the technology and how it fits into networking as a whole.  Adding mobility to this really stretches most study methods.
