Step 2: Explain it to a child (yes, if you know it well enough, you should be able to teach it to a child; also prevents you from relying on jargon). Step 3: The previous step would have helped you understand your own gaps in knowledge (you stumble explaining in simple terms when you don't understand something clearly), so go back and fill in those gaps. Step 4: Repeat Steps 2 and 3 till there are no gaps. You have now really learnt something new! More here
