Publisher's Summary

Have you ever been annoyed by teachers, parents, and faculty constantly urging you to take notes in class? And have you ever noticed that once you've put in huge amounts of effort to acquiesce to their request, that you never go back over them? The fact is that most of us don't. This audiobook outlines a research supported method that will allow you to learn and retain new information more efficiently than ever. But more importantly, it provides a wicked good method for being both the smartest person in the classroom and honking off your professor at the same time.

Can't figure out what to make of this. I was attracted by the blurb, which promised a "method" for learning that works better than taking notes. I'm all in favor of efficient learning. But what the audiobook delivers is the text of a formal research proposal comparing students who are encouraged to take notes in a lecture to students who are encouraged to participate by asking questions. The researcher seems to believe that the questioners will be shown to learn better than the notetakers. But as far as I can tell from the audiobook, the proposed research is still pending. So.... huh?

Research only

This isn't a book on how to practically study better, it's a research concept only.
