Publisher's Description

This small but mighty collection will trigger your memory with fun facts you learned in school-from adverbs to the Pythagorean Theorem. Witty, engaging, entertaining-a book you'll pick up again and again.

Author Caroline Taggart discovered two things while researching this book and talking with other people: One, everybody had been to school. And two, they had all forgotten entirely different things. Contained in this handy little book are the facts that you learned in school, but may not remember completely or accurately. Covering a variety of subjects, this book features all the most important theories, equations, phrases, and rules we were all taught years ago.

Rediscover:
* History: The first president to occupy the White House was John Adams in 1800
* Religion: The seven deadly sins and the names of the twelve apostles
* Literature: In which Shakespearean play "The quality of mercy" speech appears
* Science: The periodic table of elements devised by a Russian chemist in 1889 includes the symbol for lead (Pb), silver (Ag), tin (Sn), and gold (Au)
* Nature: How photosynthesis works

The information-presented in easy-to-retain, bite-sized chunks-is accurate and up-to- date. It will touch a chord with anyone old enough to have forgotten half of what they learned at school. Here is a perfect gift for every perennial student.

    How many times did you learn something for school just to pass a test? After the test was over so was the knowledge of that subject. In this book you'll be reminded of all the "stuff" you forgot. All the basic subjects of English, Literature, Math, Science, History, Geography, and General Studies are covered in this book.

    Who was Booker T. Washington? How do you find the mode of a set of values? What exactly happens during the Carbon cycle? What were the Napoleonic Wars about? What are the three periods of the Mesozoic Era? What is the work of art that Sandro Botticelli is best known for? The answers are in this book. If you can answer all of these questions, this book probably isn't for you.

    This booked is packed with so much information. Great works of literature are broken done into one understandable paragraph. Interesting tidbits about authors and poets are given. The many facets of Math are easily explained. The basics of Science are shown. Notable presidents of the US are highlighted. The major wars are explored. All the continents with their countries and capitals are listed. You also learn about famous artists and composers.

    If you think you have forgotten too much "stuff" that you learned in school, you need to check out this book. Your memory will be refreshed. I'm sure you'll also discover "stuff" you don't know. This book would be a good read for children and adults both. I enjoyed the refresher course I received from reading I Used To Know That.

    I received a free copy of this Reader's Digest book from FSB Media for my honest review.
