A successful student uses effective strategies.
In this companion to 'Effective Notetaking', you can learn how to effectively use the class of learning strategies called 'mnemonics'. This concise book covers a variety of simple and complex mnemonics, explaining not merely how they work, but how to apply them in your study.
Being a successful student is far more about being a smart user of effective strategies than about being 'smart'. Mnemonics, used wisely, can be a valuable addition to your cognitive toolbox.
