  1. Use all possible learning materials: internet, books, magazine, films, documentaries, podcasts, YouTube video.
  2. Sign up on as many platforms as possible within your budget, many are free.
  3. Never get stuck on a practice exercise for more than 10 minutes, if you really don't move forward, skip it and move on. Unlike Google, Linux is case sensitive, if you enter a command line and it's missing a space or even a period, it won't work.
  4. "A healthy mind in a healthy body", intersperse your hacking sessions with sport, you will often find the solution to a problem during a jogging session or a long walk.

  7. Create a profile on LinkedIn to consult those of cybersecurity professionals, you will be aware of cyber news.
  8. Use paper supports, spiral notebooks, binders, view holders, 4-color pens to keep in mind all the exercises you are going to do.
  9. Think about sleeping, it has long been proven that the brain puts in place everything that we have learned during the day during the different phases of sleep, hacking is time-consuming and you have to learn to take your nose off your computer.
