The last thing I did before I fell off the SAT cliff, was read Dr. Tahir Yagoob's book, What Can I Do to Help My Child with Math When I Don't Know Any Myself?
I consumed the entire book in BIG, voracious, eye gulps.
The title of this book suggests it's only for parents trying to help their kids with math -- and certainly, it is a must read for that reason alone. However, the book goes way beyond the parent audience, to anyone who wants to learn tried and true study methods from an extremely smart man.
Dr. Yagoob's bio from Amazon:
"I am a researcher in astrophysics and an educator in math, physics, and astrophysics. I'm always looking for new ways to understand things, and have over a quarter of a century of experience in tutoring and mentoring math and physics across the entire academic range, from students at elementary school to those in Ph.D. programs. I have also trained postgraduate students and postdoctoral researchers to become established scientists and professors in physics and astrophysics. I have published over a hundred research papers on astrophysical topics in peer-reviewed international journals and am a member of the editorial board of the international peer-reviewed journal ISRN Astronomy and Astrophysics. To inspire and be inspired are wonderful things and I have been inspired by various authors and their books ever since I can remember. Two people that stand out above the rest are Isaac Asimov and Carl Sagan, who to this day are in my consciousness, continuously driving inspiration. If you are young and have never read anything by either of them, I highly recommend reading at least one book by them, even if it is outside your usual genre list. Even though some of their subject matter may be out-of-date, their style is timeless."
Next SAT is 5 days away. I vacillate somewhere between denial and panic, while decorating my wall with math.
