Based on the author's work in science and engineering educational research, this book offers broad, practical strategies for teaching science and engineering courses and describes how faculty can provide a learning environment that helps students comprehend the nature of science, understand science concepts, and solve problems in science courses. This book's student?centered approach focuses on two main themes: writing to learn (especially Reflective Writing) and interactive activities (collaborative groups and labatorials). When faculty incorporate these methods into their courses, students gain a better understanding of science as a connected structure of concepts rather than as a toolkit of assorted practices.

There are many books on the market about advice on becoming an A-student, or books about good working habits. But in this book by IEEE Pioneer Award winner Rainer Storn these types of recommendation are specifically tailored to the needs of the field of science and engineering. This field of study is characterized by a strong mathematical bias, learning material which is difficult to understand, and an intimidating workload that is imposed upon the students. The author of this book, Dr. Rainer Storn, has been at both ends of the studying chain - as a student of electrical engineering, and as a student supervisor and lecturer. Having worked his way up to top level in his studies, and after finishing his doctorate with "summa cum laude," he knows what it takes to achieve peak performance level. This valuable book not only guides you along your path, ranging from fully understanding a subject and memorizing its factual information to being able to deliver in stressful exam situations, but it also covers thesis work and presentation skills, as well as physical health aspects and relaxation needs. This is not simply yet another page-filling guide, but a compact compilation of field-proven inside knowledge and working habits that you need in order to become a top-performing student in science and engineering.
