Présentation de l'éditeur

If you've forgotten the capital city of Chile; the basics of osmosis; how to solve a quadratic equation; the names of the Bennet sisters in "Pride and Prejudice"; who wrote the famous poem about daffodils; the use of a conjunction or the number of continents in the world, "I Used to Know That" will provide all the answers. A light-hearted and informative reminder of all the things that we learnt in school but have since become relegated to the backs of our minds, "I Used to Know That" features hundreds of important snippets of wisdom, facts, theories, equations, phrases, rules and sayings.

Book Description

Has wisdom come with age... or do you struggle to remember the things you were taught at school?
How often have you thought: "I used to know that!"

* Can you name all the Bennet sisters in Pride and
Prejudice?
* From which Shakespeare play comes the phrase `the
winter of our discontent'
* Can you explain photosynthesis? Or osmosis?
* Can you calculate fractions, decimals or percentages?
* Can you name the plagues of Egypt, the planets of the
Solar System, or the seven wonders of the world?
* When was the Battle of Trafalgar? Or the Battle of
Waterloo? And who was involved!?
* What is the capital of Chile, or of Denmark?
* Who followed Henry VIII to the throne?
* What is an adverb? Or a pronoun?
* What did Byron write? Or Shelley?

So if, like me, you have been exclaiming "I used to know that!" while reading the above, you need this book.

Caroline Taggart thought that she remembered everything from school. But when she had to explain Pythagoras' theorem and name the world's tallest mountains, she realised that she used to know that.

Ideal for your pub quiz knowledge, helping the kids with their homework or just reminding yourself how smart you once were, here is all the old-school knowledge you will ever need in bitesized and amusing chunks.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Informative, great for me, amazing for my kids 5 décembre 2009
Par A. Ornstein - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
This book is really interesting. I picked it up to take a quick look at it while at the book store and really got into it.

I picked it up for me, and quickly realized how much my kids would wind up benefiting from me reading the book. The book contains a good number of mental tricks for remembering things, and brief inside looks into each topic that it mentions.

I'm thrilled that I bought it, as its a great reference that Im sure I will refer to each year my kids get older!

It's a must have!

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Great Resouce of Lost Knowledge! 18 octobre 2009
Par Cherise Kachelmuss - Publié sur Amazon.com

Okay so this year is actually my 10-year High School reunion, not that I am going but it made me think. I mean I honestly don't remember half of what I learned and I was actually a decent student. Well the book "I Used to Know That: Stuff You Forgot From School" by Caroline Taggart is a book that is perfect to brush up on facts and subjects you may have forgotten or are remembering wrong.

In "I Used to Know That" you will find a variety of subjects, covering English, Literature, Math, Science, History, Geography, and General Studies. It is basically a quick book to reference to re-discover lost knowledge. I even love how this book looks like a school ledger, but it is hardcover so it will last. I cannot believe how useful this book is and how much I pick it up. Honestly, I find myself flipping through it all the time and always learning something new, even though this is only a 175-page book.

I re-learned about the planets, famous composers, wars, the circulatory system, geometry and so much more! I really think this book is adorable and perfect for anyone who is either currently a student or someone who wishes maybe they can remember more of what they learned in school! This book is classified as a Reference/Trivia book and is a Reader's Digest book.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 How did they know that? 25 novembre 2009

I keep this little book on my coffee table and everytime someone comes over to my house they find another tibit of information which is both helpful and entertaining. The section on percentages helped me refresh my math skills when trying to figure out a sale price and book created a new guessing game for my guests. What is the capital of Bahrain or whose nickname is the Peace Garden state? I personally like the section on British and American poets--they provide a biography of the poet with a quotable passage.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 fun facts 24 décembre 2009
Par tmtrvlr - Publié sur Amazon.com

I Used to Know That is a fun and interesting book with many tidbits of information that can be used for a quick reference guide or to brush up a little on the major subjects of Math, Literature, English, Science, History, Geography, and General Studies.

Authors of classic literature, fractions, geometry, algebra, the skeletal system, periodic table, U.S. presidents, countries and their capitals, and planets are just a few of the topics covered in this jammed packed little book.

This is an entertaining book for those interested in trivia. It would also be good for quizzing school-aged children or to just remember facts that haven't been needed for a few years.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Another desk essential! 12 août 2009
Par Rachael T - Publié sur Amazon.com

This book, along with My Grammar and I Or Should It Be Me?: Old School Ways to Improve Your English and i before e (except after c) are essential books to have on your desk! Since I do a lot of writing (and social networking), I want to make sure I know what I am talking about, and am able to write with grammatical accuracy. All of these books are great for not only repairing those mental gaps caused by being an adult and having responsibilites that leave us forgetful, but it helps me remember things I didn't realize I had forgotten! Reader's Digest really hit the nail on the head with these informative pieces! I can't wait to see what they come up with next!
