Maybe it's better to familiarize oneself with the documentation by reading through it "diagonally". Just enough to know which document contains what. It takes some time, but I find it's worth the investment.

Update: Incidently, reading through the docs you'll probably find a number of features you didn't know about, an added bonus ;)

Just my 2 cents, -gjb-

    I'll second the suggestion to read the docs. I start working my way through the camel book every once in a while and always manage to pick up something I missed before.

    I've always tried to understand the concepts when learning something new. You can always look up the details.
