Really interesting methods, fun read! I'm on 'how does the brain learn' kick right now and this, knowingly or not, does an excellent job of matching the brain's natural functions and patterns. ( )

I read the book quickly today as am finishing my master's to check if I learned what I should have learned during my studies and it seems fairly consistent.

Some of those lessons I learned the hard way, which gives the book its well deserved 4 stars ( 1 for getting straight to the point). But the book is not something break-through and on itself will not make you a straight-A student.

Get it if you're an undergrad and skim it fast. ( )

Super actionable book on how to better structure your university life. Lots of filler so you can read it in an hour or two, but definitely has enough useful concepts to be worth your time/money. ( )
