* Memorization is very important - before you can be creative you must paint with the  same brushstroke thousands of times. do not even try to bring math into it until you have gotten the rote memorization down. Trust me, this is how it works!
* If you come from a developers' bootcamp / didn't-study-Computer-Science-in-school background....., a big mistake many people like yourselves make is diving into a college-level Algorithms class first. I think it's much wiser to obtain a 500-900 page basic Data Structures Computer Science book, watch an online course on Coursera, and then augment that with the more comprehensive Algorithms course available on MIT.
* Memorization is '''very''' important - do not believe otherwise!
* It is extremely easy to forget this stuff unless you find a way to involve it in your everyday life (context) - '''always always''' try to find some kind of relationship between these concepts and your every day code, no matter how obscure!
