On of the best ways to learn is to teach someone. Once you get a feeling for everything help someone through this process. You know more than you think so don't say you don't. If you can't answer a question then google it together or ask someone with more experience. Either way, it's a great way to find out what you really know, enforce it in your memory and to have fun with a new friend.
Don't Forget to Take a Break
