However sometimes there will be limitations in using textbook as it might not be specific enough as it has a lot of topics to cover in it. I will then head to the library and look for the particular books that focus on the topic that I wanted to know more about. From there, it gives me a deeper knowledge of perhaps what the academic books touched briefly on.
If going to the library still doesn’t work It out, or maybe sometimes do not have the time to travel down to the library, I will then do a online research, The reason why I will always use the Internet as a last elution Is because the proportion of Irrelevant and unreliable source Is much higher than the other two methods that I had previously mentioned.
