When you are not a teenager or younger it is easy to learn technical software. But when you are a mature person, oh boy, the head goes in circles.
It is really good for a person no matter what the age is to learn new things. But when the teacher of the class has taught the class for many years and it becomes a second language to her/him what is a person to do.
When you come into the technical class excited, anxious because there is a reason you are learning this technical software, and you are lost on the simplest most basic parts which the teacher takes for granted. The teacher doesn’t understand that you haven’t been using this technology for 20 years. This is a new language.
It also helps when you are taking this new class if you understand ahead of time what you will be doing and why. It is easier for you, the student, to understand and remember.
