Description: A single set of lectures given to students who Feynman assumed were concerned about failing the class. In it, he discusses how to perceive success (and the lack thereof) in a successful way, how to quickly solve math problems and how to quickly analyze physics problems in general.

Pros:
1. He shows a method of derivation (he calls "dispatch") which I was not aware of.
2. The psychological talk to failing students is great for *anyone*.

Cons:
1. It's short, easy and not very difficult.

Interesting book I thought this was a solution set for the problem books This is really just abook to complement the books.

Unless you're a physicist there are parts of this that will be beyond you, s they were beyond me. Even so, a little commitment can teach you a lot. But if you're a teacher, this is a gem, physics aside. Feynman has important things to say about student motivation and moral, and about liberating students in their own terms without sacrificing content. These tips travel far beyond the boundaries of physics into just about anything we might teach.

Good stuff. A lot if it is nerd common sense, expressed very well. It makes sense and gives some good hints. He is candid, too. Some things he says "I can't help anyone with that." And he's right. He's been gone a long time and I'm still learning from him. Amazing,

This book is a reconstruction of lectures given by Feynman at the end of the second semester of Feynman's freshman physics course designed specifically to assist students who felt like they were not going to be able to pass the course. This book should be required reading for every first-year physics and engineering student!

Of course all of Feynman's writing is very interesting, but something special about this book are the chapters on applied physics, like how you make a real gyroscope for ship or plane navigation. If you're more interested in engineering than math these chapters are really engrossing. And they're also tangible -- real life examples of how things were actually built.

I am a physicist; Feynman is very profound with writing full of fun. if you having fun, its easy to miss profundity.

I would recommend this little book to every student who wants to excell in higher math or physics, chem or biology.

A helpful addition to his standard lectures and a useful stand alone text

It is not only a good suplement to the Feynman's Lessons, but also an independent book of iteresting exercises and a shows a excellent point of view on how to face the study of Physics
