You are smarter than you think!

  1. Oh I must share this with you all. I think it would be of great use to a lot of use and have been pleasantly surprised. My nursing school requires you to complete the book "You Are Smarter Than You Think! by Renee Mollan-Masters, M.A. When I first picked this book up from the book store I though oh gees, do I have to do this stupid "how to study" book. I have always been an A student and I really thought I had a grasp on my learning style and the best way for me to study. I have been working through this book and been very very pleased with all the info I gleaned from it. I found her to be right on about my best learning style and already have decided I will completely incorporate her suggestions. I was shocked to find I am an auditory learner and not a visual learner. I really thought I was a visual learner and I scored very poorly on that. (And it was clear and very apparent that I was NOT a visual learner that I learned the material better by auditory). This book is much much more than determining whether you are a visual or auditory learner though. There are lots of tips for studying and ones I just would have never thought of. I can't say enough about this book. I am actually anxiously working through it now where as when I brought the book home I didn't even want to do it. I don't want to proceed with any further studying till I finish it. Anyhow, I would highly recommend it to all of you. It can be purchased at Amazon (and I am sure elsewhere). Oh I will leave the ISBN number too if you want to do a search for it at your library as well 0-9608622-4-2

    Thanks Teresa, I am always looking for new study strategies. I will look for it today when I am at Barnes and Noble.

    I'm definitely going to check it out. I'm an A student, too, but any little bit will help. It's important for me to study more effectively when I have two toddlers always screaming my name.

    Thanks for the tip. I have a feeling I'm going to need all the help that I can get when I start school in August. I'm so nervous. It has been years and years since I have done any real studying. Appreciate the info!

    Thanks for the tip! I ordered myself one, since there are none to be had at bookstores around here. I am usually an A - B student, but I'll take any help I can get!
