Naval Ravikanth's advice on this topic helped me a lot. I would suggest look up his views on learning maths & physics from his interviews. To paraphrase him, learn the basics, learn them really well. Don't memorise. Any of the higher concepts you are learning you should be able to derive them from the core basics. This applies to everything programming, finance, arts. Naval is of course quoting most of it from Mr.Fenynman, who had some really great content on learning. Just that Navla's advice drove the point home for me. Learn, don't get lost in learning. Good luck!

On the topic of learning really well, I've found (as many others have) that applying knowledge is very beneficial to the whole learning process. And it helps creating a loop of continuous improvement. Thank you for mentioning Naval, I'll be on the lookout

Yes, practical application trumps theoretical knowledge any day.
