How to Study with Mind Maps (HTSWMM) is a book by a mind mapper, who's also a decade-long college professor, on how to mind map and how to use mind maps to improve thinking and learning in school and at work.
HTSWMM has been expanded to include a full case study on the Concise Learning Method (CLM) and a new chapter on lifelong learning with mind maps.
FIRST PART of the book discusses the foundation of mind maps as a learning tool, describes the benefits and uses of mind maps, and shows you how to draw mind maps, step-by-step, with a mind map diagram at each step. Even if you've never drawn a mind map before, you'll learn the basics and more in this one chapter that takes you through all the essentials of a mind mapping process. It also gives an overview of mind mapping uses, programs and their features, and is accompanied by extensive resources on book's website.
SECOND PART of the book shows you, step-by-step, how to use mind maps to improve your thinking and learning via CLM. With CLM, meaningful learning is achieved through a five-phase process that involves meaningfully organizing and connecting key concepts in a mind map, critically thinking, and asking key questions. This chapter is also accompanied by a full case study.
THIRD PART of the book explains how to use mind maps and CLM for lifelong learning. Included in the chapter are also tips on developing your Personal Learning Network and designing your personal learning plan. Although it's written with professionals in mind, students will also find value in the chapter, especially those students about to graduate.
To help you get started with mind maps immediately, each book also comes with a free 1-year trial of MindMeister or DropMind, two leading mind mapping programs on the market. To get your free access code, e-mail the author with your proof of book purchase and program preference.
