I'm going back to school again for a degree in engineering and successfully achieved a 4.0 this first quarter using these strategies. This would have been completely impossible for me in the past.
I am a student majoring in the sciences who suffered as a child with basic math and reading. I failed miserably in school and did not do well until after I had my daughter at the age of 19 and entered into full time college where I put my mind to things, determined to accomplished them; graduating with a 4.0 GPA. This book is something I wish I had before I started my endeavor in schooling because it would have benefited me mentally and even helped retain information. I recommend this book for every person; student or not; just read it to sharpen your mind. For students, I recommend studying this book as though it were a textbook and taking notes. I had a notebook specifically for this book when I realized it was a book worth taking notes from.
As a mother, homeschooling a dyslexic daughter, I appreciate her truthfulness which gives hope for my 8 year old daughter who struggles to read a clock, but excels in engineering and design as well as having a complex vocabulary (though a struggling reader) and horsemanship. I am now in the place to teach the passion for learning, and teaching how to learn to another person. This book will surely help me through the experience.
The author's approach was to relate her own struggles with mathematics, and the methods she used to improve her mathematical abilities, These are folk remedies. She presents scientific research to support her lessons. Also, she uses anecdotes from other students and teachers to amplify these lessons.
It was so good that I brought two (2) copies: one for myself and one for my niece as starts high school. I hope that it encourages her to study mathematics and science.
