Math and science are, without a doubt, some of the most difficult subjects in school. These subjects require you to learn different methods, formulas, and terminologies, and most of the time they can be too much to handle. With the help of this audiobook, you will learn how to tackle the heavy mental workload required by these subjects in the most efficient manner. Using just 30 simple steps, you will learn how to breeze through math and science, and in the end you will also find out that studying can be fun.
Very obvious and overly prescriptive. Short and easy to listen to though. Felt like attending a school assembly where the principal does an uninspiring inspirational speech to the students.
A person who listens closely and actually applies these techniques will likely join the crowd at the upper end of any class (the person has a reasonable aptitude for). All other things being equal, students who study any subjects like this steadily will excel. The trick is in actually sticking with all of it; but no single part is frankly that hard. (It might seem so, for a student habituated to all the noise and distractions of the modern cluttered life.) As to math and science specifically, I did not find any new revelations here. It seems to me a generic set of tips, and subject to that, a fine set. Good studiers already do most all of this.

This book is filled with very creative ways of learning truly any subject. Although, it's main focus is math and science the skills taught and once learned will be extremely helpful across the educational criculum. Ryan E. Strickland Author of Is Your Mind Shackle Free!

I struggled getting through this text though it has brief chapters. I'm an engineer and back to school for a PhD, was hoping for some new tips which I had not learned before. This may be for a younger audience just getting into high school or college.
There were definitely some good tips in there, which I have already in practice (such as doing a brain dump as soon as you get into an exam, write down tricky formulas you roughly memorized or anything in your head so you can come back to use them during the test) but most of it was telling you to practice math daily, you need to sit down with it daily, especially when your brain is not tired. I was kind of disappointed with the narration, I feel this would work best just printed out, as a list you can reference.
The voice of the narrator was a bit dull, topics repetitive, made me sleepy while driving. Maybe some stories of the application of the concepts would have made it more enjoyable.
Overall, if you are in a high school level, or middle school, I think you should listen it to get some good basic tips and understanding of how to study and what is expected of you as you move up school levels.
Has a lot of information but the voice over a bit dull but worth listening through
nothing new to learn in this audiobook, waste of time and money. for anyone who has any exposure to learning in any format, all of this content is obvious.
I feel robbed! There is absolutely nothing said in this book that you haven't already heard from your professors, parents, tutors or mentor. Just focus on your study material, READ your textbook, do your homework, eat right, exercise, get plenty of rest and relax when taking exams. That's about it.
I read other reviews about this book that said the exact same thing that I just typed, and was SURE that there was more to it than they had mentioned...But there really isn't. Save your money. Look elsewhere if you want actual study tips or tricks for doing better in math and science, cuz this isn't it!
This is a really good, short, and inexpensive book with a lot of really good tips about studying.
The author presents 30 tips about how to approach study. The focus is on math and science, but the tips can be applied to study and review of any type.
There were some really good ideas based on particular preferred styles of learning that aren't as well presented in other books, and I particularly enjoyed the part about how to read a math book. Mnemonics, study techniques, time management, organization, and preparation for study are also addressed, and the concepts are well presented.
Again, this is a good audiobook for study of any type and well worth the inexpensive price and the short time required to go through it. You will get a lot of bang for your buck out of this one.
What would have made Organized Mind better?
More deep info about memory and how our brain works in science and math.
What do you think your next listen will be?
Have you listened to any of Kirk Hanley’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?
Any additional comments?
I didn't like it
