Here's another one dollar book I scored from the Half Price Books clearance section. I'm enjoing it. I'm very much into learning and creativity at the moment. I'm enjoying the whole autodidact experience.
Peak Learning by Ronald Gross
Tens of thousands of readers have become lifelong learners with the help of Ronald Gross's bestselling guidebook. Now, Gross uses the latest developments in technology, at-home learning, and cognitive studies to provide an updated and easy-to-follow program that will take lifetime learners into the next century. In this new edition of Peak Learning, discover:
* ten ways computer technology can enliven, speed, and maximize your learning;
* how to get the courses, credit, or degree you want via Cyberspace, TV, video, audio, and other distance-learning tools; and
* how to use work-place learning resources to advance your career and earning potential.
I was one of those people who was bored and restless through most of school. I found this book my sophomore year of college-and wished I'd had it years before. Peak Learning teaches self-directed learning. What that means is you learn at your own pace in the order and style that fits you.
This book shows you how to identify and sharpen your learning style, and how to design your own learning projects. Applying these techniques put a whole new spin on college. It improved my regular courses, and inspired me to design an independent study program my senior year.
Plus, it turned me on to a whole world of resources and people dedicated to learning as an everyday experience-way beyond any classroom desk. -- From The WomanSource Catalog & Review: Tools for Connecting the Community for Women; review by Susan Sato
