Product Description

Tackle the other half of test prep with one of the only books on mindfulness and test prep, from an author who is an expert in both.

When preparing for a standardized test, content and strategy are just the tip of the iceberg, but they are all most students study. There is an entire world of thoughts and emotions, or "passengers," that affect student performance. Beyond the Content teaches students how to use mindfulness to identify and cope with the personal "passengers" that aren't addressed academically.


Mindfulness is practiced in businesses, colleges, professional sports to optimize performance, but is long overdue in test prep. No matter what test you're taking, the expert advice in Beyond the Content can help students shift their test-taking mindset from "I'm worried" to "I'm confident." 120 pages, softcover.

Publisher's Description

Learn how to tackle the hardest parts of taking a test—stress, anxiety, self-doubt—with Beyond the Content. In this quick read, you'll learn how mindfulness can help you conquer the voices in your head, study better, and approach the test with confidence.

Most test prep books, textbooks, and classes miss the mark by only focusing on strategy and content. This essential guide tackles the other half of test prep: mindfulness and your mental performance. Mindfulness is widely embraced in the business and athletic communities as a valuable technique to optimize performance. Author Logan Thompson, an expert in both test prep and mindfulness, says that it's about time the test prep community embraces it as well.

In the book, Thompson explains, "The other half of test prep is the world of fleeting thoughts and emotions, always flickering, always murmuring inside your head, usually going unnoticed and unremarked upon. They shape our perceptions and perspectives. And, they dictate our performance on tests. The other half of test prep is happening all the time, whether we like it or not. Your mental and emotional state, your surfacing memories, your underlying beliefs are always there. The good news is that, by acknowledging the other half of test prep, exploring it, and working with it, you can gain access to your full potential."
