Take an entertaining trip back to the classroom with I Used to Know That. Witty, engaging, and fun, this little book will appeal to the student in each of us. A one-of-a-kind collection of hundreds of facts learned long ago, it includes:
* Our Changing World: Test your knowledge of the latest geography.
* Prose and Poetry: From Shakespeare to diphthongs, English class will come alive again here.
* Math and Science: Quotients, phalanges, and protons . . . do these long-forgotten words take you back to high school days?
* History: As Santayana once said so well: "Those who cannot learn from history are doomed to repeat it."

Having been out of school for quite a few years (including college) it is amazing how many things I have forgotten, and I'm one of those who seeks out learning opportunities very regularly.
Sometimes when my kids bring their homework to me for help, I can't even remember how to perform certain math problems, who was the President of the United States in which order, etc. I'm sure you know what I am talking about!
This book is a great help to refresh my memory and it made me laugh!
