Mathematik versteht man oder eben nicht. Der eine ist dafür natürlich begabt, dem anderen bleibt dieses Fach für immer ein Rätsel. Stimmt nicht, sagt nun Barbara Oakley und zeigt mit ihrem Buch, dass wirklich jeder ein Gespür für Zahlen hat. Mathematik braucht nämlich nicht nur analytisches Denken, sondern auch den kreativen Geist. Denn noch mehr als um Formeln geht es um die Freiheit, einen der vielen möglichen Lösungsansätze zu finden. Der Weg ist das Ziel. Und wie man zum richtigen Ergebnis kommt, ist eine Kunst, die man entwickeln, entdecken und in sich wecken kann. Die Autorin vermittelt eine Vielfalt an Techniken und Werkzeugen, die das Verständnis von Mathematik und Naturwissenschaft grundlegend verbessern. (K)ein Gespür für Zahlen nimmt Ihnen — vor allem wenn Sie sich in Schule, Uni oder Beruf mathematisch oder naturwissenschaftlich beweisen müssen — nicht nur die Grundangst, sondern stärkt Ihren Mut, Ihren mathematischen Fähigkeiten zu vertrauen. So macht Mathe Spaß!

Die Wissenschaft hat in den letzten Jahrzehnten vieles über den Haufen geworfen, was wir darüber zu wissen glaubten, wie das Gehirn Informationen aufnimmt und verarbeitet. Fest steht: Wir lernen von Geburt an schnell, effizient und automatisch. Weil wir diesen Vorgang unbedingt systematisieren wollen, betrachten wir Vergessen, Schlafen und Tagträumen als hinderlich. Dabei sind sie wertvolle Hilfsmittel, die den Eigenarten unseres Gehirns Rechnung tragen. Benedict Carey erklärt, mit welchen Methoden wir uns Stoffe leichter einprägen und unser problemlösendes Denken verbessern können und wie wir die Potenziale des Unbewussten möglichst effizient nutzen – lernen, ohne nachzudenken. Nebenbei erfahren wir, dass Ablenkung zu Unrecht verteufelt wird, Wiederholung keineswegs immer weiterhilft und es sinnvoll ist, sich zu Themen testen zu lassen, über die man noch gar nichts weiß. Ein äußerst unterhaltsam geschriebenes Buch voller überraschender Erkenntnisse, das zeigt: Lernen muss keine Qual sein.

There is an art to studying. Anyone one can "study," but few truly learn the art. Drew Case's insightful new guide to academic achievement, The Keys to Success, provides the tools you need for a lifetime of accomplishment. The author's fifteen years of classroom instruction have helped shape this handbook into a fun and easy-to-read compilation that teaches the skills required for successful learning, studying, and test taking. Over the past decade and a half, the strategies laid out in The Keys to Success have been shown to help all types of students achieve their maximum potential time and time again. The lessons learned, however, don't simply apply to college students. Instead, anyone wishing to acquire and apply new skills can benefit from Case's expertise. Originally conceived as a short addendum to the syllabi in his college science and nursing classes, Case quickly realized just how much most students needed a no-nonsense guide to academic achievement. As a result, he modified his original materials that resulted in the comprehensive book that is The Keys to Success. So whether one is a K-12 or college student, acquiring new job skills, or even a member of the military, the potential knowledge this educative guide offers is endless. Case travels around the state presenting to various K-12 schools and colleges. Case is available for speaking and presentations. Please contact him at [email protected] for more information. Comments/Reviews While reading your book, I found myself reflecting on my college years and my laborious study methods. I wish I had read your book back then! -Bill, CreateSpace Editor This book has been a huge help to me as a high school student. I recently took an ACT preparation class and most everything covered in the class was covered in this book. It taught me how to get through tests quickly, but very efficiently and systematically. It has also taught me different methods for studying and I have found these tips very helpful. I highly recommend this book. - Isabel, High School Student Something's just need a refresher. This book provides all that and more!!! I would highly recommend this to anybody embarking on furthering their educational goals. - College Staff I think the book is great! I love the common sense approach in a day when "common sense" is rare. Your layout is clean and fresh. There is a nice flow. I found THE KEYS TO SUCCESS to be caring, upfront and a GPS to success. - College Bookstore Manager Coming back to school after many years of raising a family and having a career I felt so rusty and lost. This book literally saved my grade. If you have concerns about how to study and do well in college, this book is a MUST! Thanks Mr. Case - Angie, College Student I had Mr. Case for my pharmacology class and he gave us a copy of the unprinted book to see if we liked it. LOVED IT!!!! Seriously, I don't know how I could have passed this class without it. Why didn't you have this book available when I took your anatomy class? - Sam, College Student
