That's Waaaaaaay to broad of a question.

If you really want to become a guru then you'll have to do a lot of reading, studying, and practicing. There is no real shortcut way to get there. A lot of things that you will learn along the way in the school of hard knocks won't even be searchable on google.

So pull up a chair, grab a technical book or 2 and dive in.

A little knowledge is a very dangerous thing ...

by OldER Mycroft In reply to becoming an expert

If applied to a computer system.

In a matter of a few keystrokes or a couple of clicks of your mouse, you could render a computer system completely un-bootable.

I know since I've had to rebuild a few in-house systems because a user 'thought this would be a good idea'.

I assume what you meant to say was:
"the best way to solve problems .." and the simple answer to that is to either study the subject by reading books and articles, or by enrolling in a College Course that specialises in the area of computing that interests you.

There is no QUICK way to reach the level that may be required, but as your understanding of the problems grows, so will your ability to find solutions.

... even WITH studying, you may never become an "expert" at problem solving.

Many of us have years of experience and we still haven't attained the "expert" level. Technology changes daily and the "problems" that CAN happen are compounded by a user's level of knowledge making the possibilities of what CAN happen totally unlimited/endless.

I don't think that anyone actually "knows it all". We all learn something new almost every day. And, the best "problem solvers" among us have simply developed their "intuition" skills better than the next person.

So, as stated above.... study a lot and practice what you've studied.

Depends on how you learn

by HimDownStairs In reply to becoming an expert

You have to get some hands on experience as well as read up and keep up with industry trends, that's the best I know...but I'm no expert ;-). good luck.

A full size Bergen is a very good rucksack ...

That's why the British Army and the RAF Regiment use them.

Also, if you're not too big, you can crawl inside one and hide.

There are 3 types of computer user ...

by OldER Mycroft In reply to becoming an expert

#1 The Expert User. These users are highly skilled in the use of computers and the solving of problems. They realise there is still some way to go and constantly strive to improve their knowledge.

#2 The Skilled User. These users fall into the intermediately skilled category, realise their own limitations and constantly strive to achieve more knowledge with an aim to rise to Level #1.

#3 The Common or Garden User. These users know where the power button is, some can even spell WYSIWYG. They know next to nothing about the inner workings of a computer, but think they are #1-Experts.

#1 users and #2 users spend a fair proportion of their working lives correcting the mistakes of #3 users.
