<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>

After talking to many lifelong-learners, it's been said that we completely forget <b>(Google the Ebbinghaus forgetting curve, seriously)</b> 90% of what we read within a couple of weeks on average.</p><p>It turns out, though, that there are ways to slow down the rate of forgetting and sometimes even eliminate forgetting altogether if we take some simple actions.</p><p>Real learning doesn’t occur on the first read of a book. Real learning doesn’t even happen on the 2nd or 3rd review of our book notes. It happens only when we take action.</p><p>We all have heard that key to success in learning and memory is repetition. And in order to save 10, 20, 30, or 100 hours of precious time (that we all don't have) reading and reviewing long books, it’s important to have good notes to review that will give you the key points of a book and sum everything up for you in a short window of time.</p><p><b>CompanionReads has helped over 50,000 people with learning.</b> We’ve saved people a ton of time making notes and summarizing books for them in an easy to use format.</p><p>Imagine reading an entire book without taking any notes and then spending only 30 minutes reviewing a set of well structured and professionally written notes that easily give you only the golden nuggets of a book that you own.</p><p>Think about how easy for you it would be to then go out and take action on those ideas and start getting the results that the authors of these books intended for you. Not do this means you’ll lose the 10 hours or so that you spent reading that book.</p><p>Not only that but think about the 1,000’s of hours or $1,000’s of dollars you would’ve made or saved had you immediately implemented the strategies you read, rather than let them get forgotten on a bookshelf. You could be missing out on opportunities that could potentially double, or triple or 10X your income.</p><p>The improvement in the quality of your life would be immeasurable.
