Fantastic list Cal! There is a lot of information there that I have not seen before, and they are all definetly worth a read. Thanks.
that list is perfect. I’ll be almost finished with them by the time you get back.
Good list, this should keep me busy reading for a while.
I have a question though for when you come back. I read your book and have been trying to apply the quiz and recall technique for an admissions test I have to take for grad school. But I’m not sure how to do it because I have to basically refresh 3 different subjects plus verbal reasoning and math. It seems that once I learn something new it pushes out what I’ve previously learned.
Do you have any advice for taking standardized tests? Is there some variation of quiz and recall that works on a large volume of info? Thanks
