Summary

This brief but comprehensive, reader-friendly book takes a practical, direct approach to teaching students of college--and life--how to be more effective learners. It offers useful, immediate tips that can be used every day in almost every learning situation. Containing numerous concrete suggestions that any learner can use to accelerate achievement in college and beyond, it also provides a model of what it means to take our minds seriously. Chapter topics include how to take charge of your own learning and avoid being entertained, mental habits that interfere with active learning, evaluating reasoning, asking questions and making sense of reasoning, and finding peers who respect active learning. For anyone who loves to learn, or wants to become more open to and capable of this process.
