<p>From the bestselling author of <em>How to Read Literature Like a Professor </em>comes this essential primer to reading poetry like a professor that unlocks the keys to enjoying works from Lord Byron to the Beatles.</p><p>No literary form is as admired and feared as poetry. Admired for its lengthy pedigree鈥攁 line of poets extending back to a time before recorded history鈥攁nd a ubiquitous presence in virtually all cultures, poetry is also revered for its great beauty and the powerful emotions it evokes. But the form has also instilled trepidation in its many admirers mainly because of a lack of familiarity and knowledge. <br /><br />Poetry demands more from readers鈥攊ntellectually, emotionally, and spiritually鈥攖han other literary forms. Most of us started out loving poetry because it filled our beloved children's books from Dr. Seuss to Robert Louis Stevenson. Eventually, our reading shifted to prose and later when we encountered poetry again, we had no recent experience to make it feel familiar. But reading poetry doesn鈥檛 need to be so overwhelming. In an entertaining and engaging voice, Thomas C. Foster shows readers how to overcome their fear of poetry and learn to enjoy it once more. </p><p>From classic poets such as Shakespeare, Samuel Taylor Coleridge, and Edna St. Vincent Millay to later poets such as E.E. Cummings, Billy Collins, and Seamus Heaney, <em>How to Read Poetry Like a Professor</em> examines a wide array of poems and teaches readers:</p><ul><li>How to read a poem to understand its primary meaning.</li><li>The different technical elements of poetry such as meter, diction, rhyme, line structures, length, order, regularity, and how to learn to see these elements as allies rather than adversaries.</li><li>How to listen for a poem鈥檚 secondary meaning by paying attention to the echoes that the language of poetry summons up.</li><li>How to hear the music in poems鈥攁nd the poetry in songs!</li></ul><p>With <em>How to Read Poetry Like a Professor</em>, readers can rediscover poetry and reap its many rewards. <br /><br /><br /></p><p><strong></strong>聽</p><p><strong></strong>聽</p><p><strong></strong>聽</p><p><strong></strong>聽</p><strong></strong><p><strong></strong>聽</p>

<b>The companion book to COURSERA廬's wildly popular massive open online course "Learning How to Learn"</b><br /><br />Whether you are a student struggling to fulfill a math or science requirement, or you are embarking on a career change that requires a new skill set, <i>A Mind for Numbers</i> offers the tools you need to get a better grasp of that intimidating material. Engineering professor Barbara Oakley knows firsthand how it feels to struggle with math. She flunked her way through high school math and science courses, before enlisting in the army immediately after graduation. When she saw how her lack of mathematical and technical savvy severely limited her options鈥攂oth to rise in the military and to explore other careers鈥攕he returned to school with a newfound determination to re-tool her brain to master the very subjects that had given her so much trouble throughout her entire life.<br /> 聽<br /> In <i>A Mind for Numbers</i>, Dr. Oakley lets us in on the secrets to learning effectively鈥攕ecrets that even dedicated and successful students wish they鈥檇 known earlier. Contrary to popular belief, math requires creative, as well as analytical, thinking. Most people think that there鈥檚 only one way to do a problem, when in actuality, there are often a number of different solutions鈥攜ou just need the creativity to see them. For example, there are more than three hundred different known proofs of the Pythagorean Theorem. In short, studying a problem in a laser-focused way until you reach a solution is not an effective way to learn. Rather, it involves taking the time to step away from a problem and allow the more relaxed and creative part of the brain to take over. The learning strategies in this book apply not only to math and science, but to any subject in which we struggle. We all have what it takes to excel in areas that don't seem to come naturally to us at first, and learning them does not have to be as painful as we might think!

The Behind the Knife ABSITE Podcast Companion is a collection of outlines intended to serve as companion study aid to the Behind the Knife podcast ABSITE review series. They are the culmination of notes we have compiled over the years in our own preparation for the ABSITE. <br /><br />What This Review Is:<br />鈥 thorough review of current clinical management guidelines for the most commonly tested surgical topics.<br />鈥esigned to be reviewed multiple times in order to: <br />oHelp you score well on the ABSITE.<br />oHelp you pass the general surgery Qualifying Exam and Certifying Exam.<br />oHelp you prepare for clerkships, rotations, and daily rounds. <br /><br />What This Review Isn鈥檛:<br />鈥his is not surgical trivia 鈥?Most currently available study guides are heavy in basic science minutia. We are not going to tell you the components of the coagulation cascade. We are going to focus of key components of clinical management of surgical disease based on current guideline. This is the direction the general surgery boards are going, and there is less and less basic science showing up on the ABSITE and the boards. <br />oOther review books will tell you that the APC gene is on chromosome 5, but will they tell you what the current guidelines say regarding the surgical management of axilla with node positive breast CA? Probably not, but we will. <br />鈥his is not an exhaustive study guide. This is simply what we view and the most distilled down, high yield, need to know information for the ABSITE and the general surgery boards.

John is having problems with multiplication. His mother shows him a simple way of learning how to do it. He learns that using the word times instead of multiplication makes it much easier to understand, and it works out for him.<br />This book's aim is to assist kids in studying math in an easy and fun way. It also gives them the tools to work out the problems they are facing and develop their skills in mathematics.<br />Studies show that the main reason for children not doing well in math is based on weak foundations of previously acquired knowledge. If a child is having problems with numbers, they will not be able to work out multiplication, and if they don't understand multiplication, they will have problems with fractions and so on. A major challenge is that the words in use are not understandable to the child. For instance, what does the word multiply mean? To help your child understand, we make sure the subject is being learned in words they understand.<br />
