Customer Reviews
In this book, you will receive a crash course that will introduce you to everything you need to know in order to pass the ITIL® Foundation certification exam. This book covers just the essentials with no fluff, filler, or extra material, so you can learn the material quickly and conquer the certification exam with ease. <br /><br />This book assumes that you have no previous experience with the ITIL® framework and will teach you the bare minimum you need to know in order to take and pass the ITIL® Foundation certification exam on your first attempt. This book will NOT teach you everything you need to know to be efficient or effective in implementing the ITIL® Framework in your organization. This text is designed to get you to pass the certification exam, not to make you an expert in ITIL®.<br /><br />Due to the design of this text, we will move at a very quick pace through the material. If you read this entire book and take the practice exams located at the end of the text (scoring at least an 85% or higher), you will be ready to take and pass the ITIL® Foundation exam on your first attempt!<br /><br />(Please register your book at www.DionTraining.com to gain access to the accompanying online video course as a free bonus.)<br /><br />Dion Training is an Authorized Training Organization (ATO) for the ITIL Foundations exam.

<b>The companion book to COURSERA®'s wildly popular massive open online course "Learning How to Learn"</b><br /><br />Whether you are a student struggling to fulfill a math or science requirement, or you are embarking on a career change that requires a new skill set, <i>A Mind for Numbers</i> offers the tools you need to get a better grasp of that intimidating material. Engineering professor Barbara Oakley knows firsthand how it feels to struggle with math. She flunked her way through high school math and science courses, before enlisting in the army immediately after graduation. When she saw how her lack of mathematical and technical savvy severely limited her options—both to rise in the military and to explore other careers—she returned to school with a newfound determination to re-tool her brain to master the very subjects that had given her so much trouble throughout her entire life.<br />  <br /> In <i>A Mind for Numbers</i>, Dr. Oakley lets us in on the secrets to learning effectively—secrets that even dedicated and successful students wish they’d known earlier. Contrary to popular belief, math requires creative, as well as analytical, thinking. Most people think that there’s only one way to do a problem, when in actuality, there are often a number of different solutions—you just need the creativity to see them. For example, there are more than three hundred different known proofs of the Pythagorean Theorem. In short, studying a problem in a laser-focused way until you reach a solution is not an effective way to learn. Rather, it involves taking the time to step away from a problem and allow the more relaxed and creative part of the brain to take over. The learning strategies in this book apply not only to math and science, but to any subject in which we struggle. We all have what it takes to excel in areas that don't seem to come naturally to us at first, and learning them does not have to be as painful as we might think!<br /><br /><br /><i>From the Trade Paperback edition.</i>

Since "Studying Engineering: A Road Map to a Rewarding Career" exploded onto the market in 1995, it has become the best selling Introduction to Engineering textbook of all time. Adopted by over 300 U.S. institutions, and reaching more than 150,000 students, the book has made major inroads into the "sink or swim" paradigm of engineering education. Armed with the book as a powerful tool for "student development," large numbers of engineering programs have implemented Introduction to Engineering courses to improve the academic performance and retention rates of their students.<br /><br />Now, this pioneering text has been updated and expanded to bring students even more clarity in the process of achieving success in engineering study. <br /><br />Significant new material has been added to the Fourth Edition including:<br /><br />Ø A Prologue to provide students with a perspective on what this book has to offer and how to get it.<br /><br />Ø New sections on topics including fixed vs. growth mindset, reverse engineering, sustainability, life-long learning, study abroad, entrepreneurship, teamwork and leadership, engineering ethics, and inspirational and motivational quotations<br /><br />Ø Incorporation of the University of Maryland human-powered helicopter project to illustrate the engineering design process in action<br /><br />Ø The adoption of the National Academy of Engineering’s Grand Challenges for Engineering to provide an indication of future directions for engineering<br /><br />Ø Substantially more graphics to make the text more accessible and readable<br /><br />"Studying Engineering" is written for students both those who are already engineering majors and those who are considering engineering as their field of study. <br /><br />The purpose of this innovative and exciting book is to enhance student success. Through its eight chapters it teaches students about: <br /><br />1. The keys to success in engineering study <br /><br />2. The rewards and opportunities of an engineering career. <br /><br />3. An understanding of the field of engineering—past, present, and future <br /><br />4. Insight into the learning process <br /><br />5. Academic success strategies needed to excel in mathematics, science, and engineering courses <br /><br />6. The process of personal development needed to ensure that their behaviors and attitudes support their goal of becoming an engineer <br /><br />7. Ways to enhance the quality of their education through participation in student organizations, pre-professional employment, engineering projects, study abroad, and service the institution and/or community <br /><br />8. The engineering education system and how to take full advantage of that system. <br /><br />Students can read the book on their own or use it in conjunction with an Introduction to Engineering course having a “student development/student success” focus. Reflections are interspersed throughout each chapter so that students can read a section and then stop to engage in a guided reflection about what they just read. Completion of many of 203 end-of-the-chapter problems provides opportunity for significant learning experience. A design project to “Design Your Process of Becoming a World-Class First-Year Engineering Student” provides a vehicle for students to become actively involved in their growth and development as an math/science/engineering student.
