comment Is the skill to learn new math by reading textbook alone (no lectures) required when one becomes a PhD student?
in college, instructors always recommended students reading the section that's going to be taught before going to the lecture to increase the effectiveness of the lecture. But I often find myself spending more time reading the textbook on materials that the professor might not have covered. I'm not sure I see how reading prior going to the lecture is beneficial to a student... can you help to elaborate on that a little? Thanks
