Summary

Being smart helps. Working hard helps more. But working effectively helps most of all.

 
There's a great deal that research can now tell us about how to study effectively. For 20 years, I've been reporting on research into memory and learning, and explaining how these findings can be translated into practical advice. In earlier books, I have presented a lot of detail on strategies in specific areas: note-taking, mnemonics, practice and revision. In this guide, I attempt to provide an overview of how to approach your learning, and the strategies you should consider using.

 
The book covers:


	preparing for learning
	approaching a text
	reading
	taking notes
	building understanding
	navigating non-linear environments
	dealing with lectures
	memorizing
	revising
	building expertise in skills
	how specific subjects differ in their needs & demands


 
The book can be used as an adjunct and quick reference for those who have the more in-depth workbooks, or as a simplified guide for those who want the bottom-line without the detail.

 
This is not a book for students who want a magic bullet, who want a five-minute 'answer' to effortless study! But students who want to know that their time and effort are being used wisely, that their diligence will be rewarded with better marks and more long-lasting learning, this guide may be the answer they've long been looking for.

    A valuable health resource from the New York Times–bestselling author of The Natural Mind and Spontaneous Happiness.   “Dr. Andrew Weil is an extraordinary phenomenon,” says the Washington Post. And indeed, this expert in healthy living, alternative healing, and the mind-body connection has helped millions of people find relief from what ails them.   Called “the bible of natural medicine” by Larry Dossey, MD, Natural Health, Natural Medicine is a comprehensive resource for everything you need to know to maintain optimum health and treat common conditions. This landmark book incorporates Dr. Weil’s theories into one useful and readable reference, featuring general diet and nutrition information as well as simple recipes, answers to readers’ most pressing questions, a catalogue of over a hundred home remedies, and numerous practical tips.   This new edition includes updated scientific findings—and has been expanded to provide trustworthy advice about low-carb diets, hormone replacement therapy, Alzheimer’s, attention deficit disorder, reflux disease, autism, type 2 diabetes, erectile dysfunction, the flu, and much more.   “Weil, a Harvard Medical School graduate and a member of the advisory panel for the Congressional Study of Alternative Cancer Therapies, advocates preventative health maintenance as a means of combating future painful and expensive therapies. The handbook proposes methods of creating a healthy lifestyle, offers advice on guarding against potentially fatal diseases, provides information on natural treatments, and recommends these treatments for specific common ailments. Controversial in its challenge of orthodox medicine, the manual stands out as a useful resource for its clear, concise writing style, its practical advice, and its thoughtful examination of the important issues facing contemporary health care.” —Library Journal

One of the natural foods being rediscovered is the coconut. Although vilified as a cause of heart disease, coconut oil has always shown itself to be a healthy and curative oil. Numerous studies using the tools of modern science are finally revealing—and validating—the beneficial effects of coconut oil.”— From the Prologue
