As back-to-school season is in full-swing, I am getting ready to form some study habits for this semester just like many college students around the globe. What’s one of our necessary study tools? Textbooks. Sometimes we like to skip over reading in college, but if our grade depends on it, we will study our textbooks into the early morning hours and look for tools to make studying easier and more efficient.
Lucky for us, McGraw-Hill Education has launched its new SmartBook, the first and only adaptive reading and learning experience designed to change how students read and learn. Studies show that SmartBook improves student performance by at least one letter grade by making the learning process more interactive and catered to each student’s needs.
I had the chance to review a Contemporary Nutrition SmartBook, as I have become more interested in learning about healthy habits and nutrition in the 21st century. I also may take a class on it next semester! As I was reading about some current statistics about health and nutrition in our world, I was able to pinpoint information that was very important by SmartBook’s highlighting functions. Basically, the SmartBook highlights information based on what you know and don’t know and lets you practice studying with question and answer segments to help you retain what you learn!
But wait, studying just got bigger.
SmartBook is part of McGraw-Hill’s Read it Forward Initiative: for every SmartBook purchased before October 31, 2014, McGraw-Hill Education will donate a textbook to a child in need. That’s right, this is why textbooks are like the new Tom’s shoes: YOU have the power to educate children around the world!
Also, to make SmartBook more affordable on a student budget, McGraw-Hill is offering 15% off with promo code FORWARD14 through October 31.
From one student to another, we can all help make a difference in student education around the world, like never before!
