How to Use Your Mind
Educational leaders are seeing with increasing clearness the necessity of teaching students not only the subject-matter of study but also methods of study. Teachers are beginning to see that students waste a vast amount of time and form many harmful habits because they do not know how to use their minds. The recognition of this condition is taking the form of the movement toward ",supervised study,", which attempts to acquaint the student with principles of economy and directness in using his mind. It is generally agreed that there are certain ",tricks", which make for mental efficiency, consisting of methods of perceiving facts, methods of review, devices for arranging work.

Many of them can be imparted by instruction, and it is for the purpose of systematizing these and making them available for students that this book is prepared.
