DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

There are many books on the market about advice on becoming an A-student, or books about good working habits. But in this book by IEEE Pioneer Award winner Rainer Storn these types of recommendation are specifically tailored to the needs of the field of science and engineering. This field of study is characterized by a strong mathematical bias, learning material which is difficult to understand, and an intimidating workload that is imposed upon the students. The author of this book, Dr. Rainer Storn, has been at both ends of the studying chain - as a student of electrical engineering, and as a student supervisor and lecturer. Having worked his way up to top level in his studies, and after finishing his doctorate with "summa cum laude," he knows what it takes to achieve peak performance level. This valuable book not only guides you along your path, ranging from fully understanding a subject and memorizing its factual information to being able to deliver in stressful exam situations, but it also covers thesis work and presentation skills, as well as physical health aspects and relaxation needs. And, maybe most importantly, this book not only helps to achieve an A-grade exam but also covers the necessity and value of many principles for a successful professional life. This is not simply yet another page-filling guide, but a compact compilation of field-proven inside knowledge and working habits that you need in order to become a top-performing student and professional in science and engineering.

Editor: Vintage Canada

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

From the best-selling author of The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle and After Dark, a rich and revelatory memoir about writing and running, and the integral impact both have made on his life. In 1982, having sold his jazz bar to devote himself to writing, Haruki Murakami began running to keep fit. A year later, he’d completed a solo course from Athens to Marathon, and now, after dozens of such races, not to mention triathlons and a slew of critically acclaimed books, he reflects upon the influence the sport has had on his life and–even more important–on his writing. Equal parts training log, travelogue, and reminiscence, this revealing memoir covers his four-month preparation for the 2005 New York City Marathon and includes settings ranging from Tokyo’s Jingu Gaien gardens, where he once shared the course with an Olympian, to the Charles River in Boston among young women who outpace him. Through this marvellous lens of sport emerges a cornucopia of memories and insights: the eureka moment when he decided to become a writer, his greatest triumphs and disappointments, his passion for vintage LPs, and the experience, after the age of fifty, of seeing his race times improve and then fall back. By turns funny and sobering, playful and philosophical, What I Talk About When I Talk About Running is both for fans of this masterful yet guardedly private writer and for the exploding population of athletes who find similar satisfaction in distance running.

Editor: Stylus Publishing, LLC

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

Following up on her acclaimed Teach Students How to Learn, that describes teaching strategies to facilitate dramatic improvements in student learning and success, Saundra McGuire here presents these “secrets” direct to students. Her message is that “Any student can use simple, straightforward strategies to start making A’s in their courses and enjoy a lifetime of deep, effective learning.” Beginning with explaining how expectations about learning, and the study efforts required, differ between college and secondary school, the author introduces her readers, through the concept of metacognition, to the importance and powerful consequences of understanding themselves as learners. This framework and the recommended strategies that support it are useful for anyone moving on to a more advanced stage of education, so this book also has an intended audience of students preparing to go to high school, graduate school, or professional school. In a conversational tone, and liberally illustrated by anecdotes of past students, the author combines introducing readers to concepts like Bloom’s Taxonomy (to illuminate the difference between studying and learning), fixed and growth mindsets, as well as to what brain science has to tell us about rest, nutrition and exercise, together with such highly specific learning strategies as how to read a textbook, manage their time and take tests. With engaging exercises and thought-provoking reflections, this book is an ideal motivational and practical text for study skills and first year experience courses.
