Good article about the suppressed contributions of women in science. While I would optimistically like to think that most people know about Rosalind Franklin's contribution to the discovery of the structure of DNA now, the problem goes much deeper.

I'm taking an online course but I don't know how to study. I mean it literally.
The material is a 100 pages pdf. Obviously I can't learn everything in it. I don't know how to find a way to study that works for me. Should I just read it again and again or take notes while reading, or doing mind mapping (but then how do I choose what is important to know)...
What I'm asking is what is your own method to study? Do you have any tips on how to find my own way ?
