This reminds me of some of the best learning advice I ever received. It came from my A-Level Physics teacher:

"Revision is for wimps"

He meant essentially that any amount of last minute cramming, or just trying to stuff your head with information that you didn't fully take the time to really understand - is completely futile.

Learn by doing - it's the key to understanding

100% agree! cramming never helped me in uni. Actually, it made things worse haha
