Description

Whether you're training to play the piano, speak a foreign language, shoot a target with a bow and arrow, or master the techniques of fine carpentry, the conditions of your training will affect how successfully you learn and perform.

How can you process new information in order to remember it better and use it in the future?
How long should you work, study, or practice before taking a break?
Is it desirable or even possible to ""overlearn""?
How can you counteract fatigue and boredom to improve performance if the task is tedious?

Cognitive psychologists Lyle Bourne and Alice Healy have studied these and other questions for decades to determine the best training conditions for learning and job performance. Readers will learn how best to acquire, retain, and transfer knowledge and skills to new situations.

Not only are the basics of effective training principles explained, but exercises in the form of mini-experiments are provided so that readers can see first-hand why some learning conditions are better than others.

Regardless of what subject or skill you're learning, you can maximise your training for higher levels of performance. This book tells you how.
