L. Ron Hubbard developed a considerable amount of material on the subject of learning and Study Technology which extends beyond the scope of this handbook. The materials shown here contain the full technology of study and give a complete understanding of the most basic factor of education: how to learn. Study Technology is available in its entirety in book and lecture form and in courses delivered in Scientology organizations as well as many educational groups all over the world. A list of these is in the back of this book. Millions of people have learned the basics of Study Technology and use them daily.
