increase your Learning Skills.
Discover how today's corporations are benefiting from accelerated
learning to speed training time, improve results, and reduce costs.
Accelerated learning is the use of music, color, emotion, play, and
creativity to involve the whole student and enliven the learning experience.
The Accelerated Learning Handbook is the first definitive book to
explain state-of-the-art accelerated learning techniques to trainers and
teachers, and features 40 techniques designed to save money while producing
far better results.
Leading expert Dave Meier provides an overview of the background and
underlying principles of accelerated learning, and reviews the latest
supporting research results. Training professionals will look to The
Accelerated Learning Handbook to:
- Improve the long-term value of training
- Cut course development time by half
- Discover tips for music- and computer-based learning
We live in an era when the unprecedented speed of change means: The only
certainty is uncertainty; you can't predict what skills will be useful
in ten years time; in most professions knowledge is doubling every two
or three years; and no job is forever--so being employable means being
flexible and retraining regularly.
Accelerated Learning into the 21st Century contains a simple
but proven plan that delivers the one key skill that every working
person, every parent and student must master, and every teacher should
teach: it's learning how to learn. The theory of eight multiple
intelligences (linguistic, logical-mathematical, visual-spatial,
kinesthetic, musical, interpersonal, intrapersonal, and naturalist)
developed by Howard Gardner at Harvard University provides a foundation
for the six-step MASTER-Mind system to facilitate learning (an acronym
for Mind, Acquire, Search, Trigger, Exhibit, and Review), and is
enhanced by the latest findings on the value of emotion and memory on
the process of learning.
Combined with motivational stories of success applying these
principles, and putting forth a clear vision of how the United States
can dramatically improve the education system to remain competitive in
the next century, Accelerated Learning into the 21st Century is a
dynamic tool for self-improvement by individuals as diverse as
schoolchildren and corporate executives

How to Learn Anything Quickly: An Accelerated Program for Rapid Learning
This is the book we should all have been exposed to early in our school
years. It would have made our respective remainder of our academic career
much more successful and fun.
The two tests within the book are excellent and accurate. It measures you on
two axis, the first one whether you are quantitative oriented (left brain),
or more creative/artistic oriented (right brain). The other axis measures
what is your main informational sensory channel (visual, audio,
kinesthetic). By combining the results of the two tests, you will know what
is the best way for you to absorb information and learn new stuff.
I have read tons of books on this subject. This is the clearest

Mozart for Accelerated Learning
Significant evidence has shown that
particular types of music can improve our ability to learn. Baroque music is
particularly conducive as it helps us to attain a state of relaxed
alertness, known as the "alpha state", which is so beneficial to effective
study. While in the alpha state, a person is able to learn in a stress-free,
high-energy environment. When classical music of around 60 beats per minute
is arranged and performed on a synthesiser, the results are even more
effective. Crown House Publishing has exclusively commissioned ex-Fulbright
scholar and Master of Music, Roland Roberts, to arrange two hours of
Mozart's most suitable pieces of 'Passive Music' specifically for the
purpose of accelerating your learning. Specially arranged, these
CDs/audiotapes are newly recorded productions. As background music when
studying, they will help to accelerate the pace of learning effortlessly
Music for Accelerated Learning
Am I the only one, or does all of
Steve Halpern's music sound the same? Of course, he would say that my
unconscious mind is interpreting this stuff differently. I'm not a "play it
backwards" person, but due to a tape player malfunction the darn think
played backward and you know what? It sounded the same. Now think what that
would do to your subconscious mind!
His music is soothing and great for background (either forwards or
backwards). Better than elevator music for waiting rooms.
