Mange gode ideer til hvordan man kan optimere sin indlæring og hukommelse samt god baggrundsviden til hvorfor disse teknikker virker. Den er dog næsten 20 år gammel og nogle af teorierne er derfor lidt forældede.
God bog til studerende og folk som interesserer sig for uddannelsessystemet

Forgetting is inevitably a daily occurrence -- or so we thought. This book argues that the human brain's limits come not from the deterioration of one's body at the coming of old age, but rather because there are not enough connections in one's mind to recall stored information. Essentially, the author sought to educate her readers of how to how to use skills such as imagination and visualization to retain information as long as possible.

This a reference book, referring to other references. There are mentions of interesting tests and mind studies, but nothing life-changing. The last half of the book acts as a sales gimmick trying to convince you to attend an Accelerated Learning class.

I wish I had read it before I went to Medical school. I have already applied most of the techniques found in this book simply because it works and not because school taught me how. I wish I knew all of those techniques before although I was still able to pick up some new ones... thanks to this book. This should be read by everyone in the academe and most importantly, be applied for the benefit of the students found in all of us and the people we love.

This book contains much of the research used for Accelerated Learning for the 21st century. I liked it. It also shows where some of the research and thoughts are coming from for the PHOTOREADING system.

Ayah saya memberikan buku ini saat saya masih SMA. Buku ini lebih cocok untuk mahasiswa pedagogi. Isinya luar biasa banyak jargon pendidikan modern. Bagus dan pesan yg diberikan kurang lebih mengelaborasi usulan Paideia nya Mortimer J. Adler.

This was probably my favorite book on Brain-based learning that used what it teaches to teach. I like their discoveries and stories about applying these tactics to learning new languages, 300 words or more a day.
