"This book dazzled me with its depth and practicality. After reading it, I realized how horribly inefficient my approach to learning was. It includes a smorgasbord of approaches from which students can select the strategies that best suit their learning styles. It offers ideas for everyone.
Gayle H. Swift, Co-founder of GIFT Gamily Services
A comparison of this book (the first edition) and the soon to be available second edition) Some readers appreciate the length and detail in the first edition. They may find the 101 practical learning strategies to be helpful. For that reason, it will continue to be available.
The second edition is smaller and shorter. It leaves out many of the sections that students don't really need to know, focusing on what students will find most helpful. This means students will find if easier to read while getting all the important concepts. It also includes a chapter about Learning with your Brain Turned ON which students will both enjoy and find very helpful.
