How To Remember What You Read

While many authors offer multiple techniques to teach you how to read faster and read more, not many actually help you be more productive. Being efficient depends on being able to apprehend and remember more out of all the information consumed. And you know how these days we spend our time receiving information from everywhere around us, as people and companies selfishly fight for our attention. We are constantly in the state of an information overload, which makes our brain decide for us what will be marked as “valuable” and remembered, and what will be put into the remote corners of our memory.

Become Savvy In Your Upcoming Academic Year

So the new semester is already here, and while it may indicate a promising and purely exciting time, it also (with no intent to upset you) is the time when you spend your savings and hope you still have some money left to spend with you friends. I mean, sure, the situation isn’t that somber for everyone, but the amount of money students spend on textbooks is just absurd. And the numbers are growing. Since 2006 textbook prices steadily move up, and in 2016 that increase reached 73%. And while you can name a bunch of reasons to justify this pattern of behavior of publishing giants, it does literally nothing good to your own pocket.

We’ve all heard horrid stories about graduates living their lives haunted by the debt trails of their precious diplomas. And while we might be under illusions that it will not be our case, it will be a good idea to take some precautions. Designed by the government education system has been having its way with college students for way too long, so don’t let them take advantage of your lack of knowledge. So what to do to ease your way into adulthood and not end up in the purely surviving mode? Use these loopholes in the system (more like tips carefully gathered by us) and save up for your future.

Loose Leaf Textbook: What Is It?

Many textbooks are currently sold in a loose leaf, or “binder ready” format (which is also sometimes called a la Carte since they may be printed on demand by the publsiher).

If a book is a loose leaf, this means that it does not have a traditional binding like a hardcover or a paperback: basically, loose leaf edition is just a stack of pages which may be three-hole-punched so that they could be held together by a binder.

Loose leaf editions have their advantages and disadvantages comparing to other editions, and you might want to consider them before purchasing such book:

Pros:

1. They are usually cheaper than hardcovers, and no wonder: a simple stack of paper is much easier to produce.

2. You can take out one chapter and bring it with you: no need to carry a whole thousand-page volume everywhere.

Cons:

1. Many a la Carte editions cannot be sold back since they do not have their own ISBN, or there is low demand for used loose leaf books in general. Continue reading “Loose Leaf Textbook: What Is It?”

Most of them are required basics in such courses as Anatomy & Physiology, Sociology, Calculus etc. and serve as an introduction into the world of other specialized subjects.

The most popular categories that we were selling in June and July 2017 proved to be Anatomy and Mathematics. Sociology and Biology were slightly behind, but what they were lacking in quantity they gained in speed of how quickly they were sold.
