The new second edition has been restructured and revised based on intensive feedback from college and university faculty members across the country that used the first edition text in their classrooms. The new text incorporates some of the latest research in brain-based learning and cognitive psychology and the corresponding learning strategies that are supported by these findings. In addition, the newly revised second edition of Academic Transformation has been updated to be particularly responsive to the distinctive issues and pressures of today's post-modern students.
