Editorial Reviews

ForeWord Reviews
The message is front and center in this book — Krasnic wants his students to be successful. Krasnic promotes a study strategy that efficiently organizes and connects information. His method is supported by research in psychology. Krasnic instructs students to make use of visual maps, thereby actively engaging with subject material. This learning technique is complemented, in the second half of this manual, by thirteen skills that Krasnic associates with success in school and college. It's a quick read with some valuable takeaways. Concise Learning is bound for many bookshelves.

Concise Learning is a wonderful tool for teachers and students. The brain remembers visuals and turning short-term memories into long-term memories is what learning is about.

This book should be no more than an arm s length away from the desk of every student starting college. It sets out a systematic five-phase study process, built on the principle that visualizing information makes learning concrete and generates interest. It describes how to organize the material being learned visually. It gives a method for critical thinking, shows how to spot gaps in understanding and fill them, and it does this in a highly motivating and visual style.
