In summary, the best way for a non-traditional learner to study physics is to focus on conceptual understanding rather than memorization, seek out interactive and hands-on learning opportunities, and utilize various resources such as online tutorials and study groups. It is also important for the learner to have a positive mindset and persevere through challenges.

How did you find PF?
Web search
Even though I've never been to college, I'm interested in learning physics. I'm 51 years old and I live in Bean Station, Tennessee. I've been interested in learning science for three and a half decades but haven't gotten around to learning a lot. But when I took high school science, I got a 100 on my exams.
