Product Description:

I picked up this book thinking to myself “could learning not be accomplished with any book?” I should have remembered “don’t judge a book by its cover” while I was busily assessing the merit of this book. This book does not teach stuff – i.e., you won’t learn about photosynthesis, or the War of 1812, or how to divide square roots by fractions. It teaches something far more valuable: it teaches you how to learn, how to study effectively for the retention of knowledge. The best part? Author David Farmer recognizes the incredibly unique situation of each and every homeschool family, and has written this book of study tips and techniques specifically for the homeschool environment. Paging through these tips, which range in length from a single sentence to a couple of pages, it can be clearly seen that they are meant to engage all the senses and utilize the flexibility of homeschooling. 158 tips are divided between 10 chapters: 1 – building a foundation of learning, 2 – setting attainable goals and planning your work, 3 – time management, 4 – “a little bit about memory,” 5 – study techniques for efficiency and effectiveness, 6 – taking notes from lectures and oral material, 7 – getting the most from texts and taking notes from textbooks, 8 – writing, 9 – sharpening your listening skills, and 10 – test taking. A final chapter looks at what parents can do to lay a good foundation for children K-6. A resource that will greatly benefit any student, regardless of what they’re studying. 130 pgs, pb. – Zach
