  • Determine Priority functions for your school/position

  • Don’t try to implement the full set of features immediately

  • Focus your learning on top priority items first to ensure strong knowledge of functionality

    • You will still be learning new things 3, 4, 5 years into using the product

  • Take notes, but don’t think the way you did it last year is the only way of performing a task.
