Which book for which subject

    Can you remember what you had for lunch last week Tuesday? Probably not. Our brains are masters at forgetting information we don’t repeat regularly. But what can we do about it? I, like many others, had to painstakingly learn the art of learning as I went through college. Here are some of my tips for successful learning.
    There are various books for each subject: the classic, short textbooks, scripts and flashcards. I don’t think there is a general recommendation of what is good for everyone. What has given me the most motivation has helped me the most. Listen around to what other students are using. Check the library to see what they have in stock. At many universities, each department gives a recommendation and that book is then in stock in a large number. I was always careful with first editions of books. Often errors have crept in.
