The best practical guide for how to succeed at technical subjects that I've seen (and I've read a fair amount on this subject). Research backed, including lots of stuff I've read elsewhere, but condensed down to solid, practical advice with just a bit of research backstory (many of the other books I've read go into greater detail on the research methodologies, which is great but not really what you care about when you're actively struggling with learning tricky algorithms or writing tough proofs and trying to figure out what you can do to get better).

I'd recommend this to anyone studying Math, Computer Science, Physics, or other technical subjects (and have been actively recommending it to my coding bootcamp students). The book focuses on math, but the techniques apply elsewhere.

I am pretty sure I have more dog-eared pages than not! Some of the ideas where a little more geared to primary and secondary teaching but there was still plenty of great stuff for postsecondary teaching.
