About the Book Holistic learning is a process for learning more effectively. The concept for holistic learning came out of several small articles I wrote beginning with a popular entry entitled, “How to Ace Your Finals Without Studying.” The main idea I presented was that some people effortlessly learn new concepts and material while others struggle. I believe that the difference between these factors is mostly due to a process called holistic learning. As many people who read the initial articles on holistic learning commented, you may notice that your own learning style closely reflects holistic learning. Holistic learning isn't a new technique or revolutionary idea. It is simply a way of explaining how smart people think! If you don't have time to read the book, here is a quick summary of what it's about: Holistic learning is the opposite of rote memorization. Instead of learning through force, your goal is to create webs of information that link together. Your goal when learning anything is to create a construct or an underlying understanding. Constructs are formed from models, chunks of understanding that aren't completely accurate but can be used to solve problems. You create webs of information, constructs and models by visceralizing, metaphor and exploring Holistic learning works with highly conceptual information where there is an underlying system. It doesn't work well with arbitrary information or skills.

It’s already noon and I’m getting that gnawing feeling in my stomach like a small child making demands in a toy store. I tell myself it’s lunchtime and that seems to satiate me as if I just told the kid he might have the toy if he just shuts up for a bit. The intercom interrupts me and calls me down to the office. What now?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
