I want you to know that if you look well, you'll find a lot of books whose authors care about illustrating the concepts they explain with images. It will be hard because they (books and authors) seem to be a minority, but you'll find them in time. I have been thinking about it lately and sometimes ...

For most people I've met, college was a rite of passage; usually with the understanding that you'd forget everything after a few years, frequently with vague allusions to how quickly scientific knowledge changes. Thats a depressing thought. I never learn anything without the intention of rememberin...

If that method of studying doesn't work for you, then you'll need to find another method, which it sounds like you already have. It sounds like it might take you more time than it does other students to incorporate ne...

In my biology class the lecturer would say things like "spend 20 minutes a day when you get home to read over your notes and you will retain 80% of it". What kind of BS is that? You might retain the sequence of words but you can't put a...

Anyone else here think mainly in pictures?
