I was sitting at my computer one day, switching back and forth
and writing up notes for my upcoming Basics of Work
Psychology and Leadership
. By the time I realized that this was indeed what I was doing,
the next step was obvious: why not combine the two? I did, and
the node called organizational behavior
is the result.
The basic idea is a cross between Node Your Homework and
Node What You Don't Know. Sure, notes for an exam will
be considerably more cursory than your average scholarly essay,
but for all too many subjects -- including organizational behavior, and pretty much the entirety of
management/business administration at that -- there
is next to no information up on E2, so a few basic definitions
and a list of bullet points are much better than nothing.
They also provide a handy skeleton for someone else to continue
The other Good Thing is that this is an excellent way to study
for a written exam, as turning an idea into a coherent E2 writeup is
pretty much the same process as turning it into a coherent exam
answer, and it will thus mercilessly locate any gaping holes in your
store knowledge. Obviously this will work better for subjects like
social sciences and biology than for calculus or quantum physics,
and each subject can essentially be noded only once, but that still
leaves several thousand suitable subjects.
So what are you waiting for? Start studying!
Warning: according to Node Your Homework,
posting lecture notes on the Internet violates the policies of
some money-grubbing universities, so noding too detailed a study guide may land you in
hot water. The other obvious problems are plagiarism and copyright,
so give credit where credit is due and stay within the bounds of fair use.
