Solid guidelines

Been struggling to teach myself game development in my spare time, I have ADHD and even with meds the sheer scope of what I need to learn in terms of programming and 3D asset creation and animation has proven overwhelming at times, and I've realized more and more that I need a system to manage the learning and retain what I've been learning. I'll applying a lot of this, thanks for the tips!

Excellent book - it has everything you need

Look no further - this is literally the only book you will need to improve your ability to learn.

Whether a student seeking to improve your retention, understanding and grades or a professional seeking to master a new subject - this book has everything you need. It’s clear, to the point, referenced and doesn’t ramble on like some other publications do - great if you have time, no so good if you don’t!

I also thoroughly enjoyed the narration - great voice, pace and tone.

Overall - highly recommended - thank you!!
