This book is very straightforward and the author really nails in the idea that thorough understanding is much more important than superficial learning.

This was a very good book that contained many great insights on the human brain and how to retain knowledge. It stresses the importance of actually understanding that which you study instead of just reading and memorizing. You should definitely get this is you are a student or even a teacher.

There is a world of difference between being a good student (getting good grades) and being a good learner (actually retaining information and being a more intelligent person). This book provides insight into the difference, and gives great instructions on how to really study and learn mindfulness when presented with information. The copyright on this is from 1917. It is 95 years old, and still 100% applicable to students today.

This book has a philosophical view about learning. It takes many principles about how we develop our understanding in any subject. As a student, I could say that it provides essential insights as well as advises

I did not agree with everything, but the author hit all the key points he needed to make.
The only major problems I had were: the bashing of route memorization but the author does admit it is helpful in context as long as the student is thinking for themself; and the descretion of a teacher or student to turn out a student who isn't suited for their studies so they can go on to pursue their talents. That is very hard to discern and could result in a lot of trouble for the student and also the teacher/institution. I like how the author noted ideally the student should judge if he is suited for a certain study.

For the most part though the suggestions are genious and I use them daily. Some things sound like common sense like getting enough rest and exercise or making time for hobbies. But it was so nice to have those things alongside the philosophy of learning and reasoning.

I highly reccomend this to all, students,teachers,readers, and generally speaking...learners.

I have a degree in biochemistry, but have returned to college to pursue a different course because I felt even with the degree I knew very little...

This book has taught me how important it is to understand rather then rote learn and has made me realize why I have a degree but no real aptitude...

Read this book, it will save you making the same mistake I did.

I enjoyed the book. It is an excellent text for one who is interested in critical analysis of other books. I bought the book to introduce my 13-year-old grandson to methods of study and critical analysis. It is too advanced for his use at this stage in his studies and development.
