There are efficient and inefficient ways to learn stuff, but if somebody is offering you a wishful-thinking "magic learning" system to master quantum physics overnight, call your district attorney. ...Read more

In-Home DVDs: I am a huge fan of beachbody's line of in-home dvds and subscribe to many of them myself. Check out p90 &; p90x.
