Looking for the thread regarding Active vs passive learning?

Could anybody pls recall the thread about active vs passive learning in this forum? I searched for it by the keywords but looks like not availalbe. It talked about a candidate did not do any practice/mock exam coz she never felt comfortable with the study material. As time flied , she read the material again and again but ended up with not having done any practice exams prior to the real exam and eventually failed. Actually this is also the problem I am often faced with. Sounds like a psycological obstacle. The feedback to that thread was very positive and encouraging but I did not save it. Any clues/suggestions? Tks a lot!
