While they are a superior self-learning guide for students on their own, Quick Learn Guides are also exceptional tools for teachers in the classroom environment.
Several Learning strategies are combined to make these the easiest and most interesting way for students to gain and retain critical knowledge and give them practical experience from the very beginning. The approach is informal and friendly with a variety of scenario-based practice exercises that keep the student fully engaged. The exercises are followed by immediate feedback. Scenario-based questions add interest and keep the student's attention. Important information is reviewed several times in varying formats such as Quick Quizzes and Chapter Quizzes, eliminating the need for rote memorization and repetitiveness utilized in older style textbooks. With the exception of review exercises, students are never presented more than seven questions without receiving feedback in keeping with the rule of thumb known as Miller's law.
These Quick Learn Guides can be used in the classroom, assigned as homework, or a combination of the two methods. To help place the terms and information into the student's long-term memory, each chapter reviews and builds upon the important information contained in the prior chapters; a method which has been proven to enhance retention of the material.
One of the weaknesses of other books currently on the market is that they fill space with extraneous text. Quick Learn Guides focus on the "need to know" rather than the "nice to know". These books combine humor, illustrations and a high-level of interaction, combining repetition with novelty in order to maximize learning.
