When I was taking business courses online with American Military University, the first course requirement was to read Learn More Now: Ten Simple Steps to Learning Better, Smarter, and Faster by Marcia Conner. The book breaks down the process of learning in an easy to understand way. This is more than a reading assignment, it is a journey of discovery. Discover your personal motivation for learning, what type of learner you are, study strategies, and how to think like a teacher.
Conner includes tips for learning, details on how nutrition, exercise, senses, and scents affect focus. For example, the scent of peppermint could enhance focus during your next study session!
You can pick up a copy at Amazon or search your local library.
