This popular book shows students how to increase their power to analyze problems and to comprehend what they read using the Think Aloud Pair Problem Solving [TAPPS] method. First it outlines and illustrates the method that good problem solvers use in attacking complex ideas. Then it provides practice in applying it to a variety of comprehension and reasoning questions, presented in easy-to-follow steps. This feature permits students to work without supervision, outside the classroom. As students work through the book they become smarter, more effective, and more confident problem solvers—on tests, in academic courses, and in any occupations as well as personal relationships that involve analyzing, untangling, or comprehending knotty ideas. Not only can using the TAPPS methods assist students in achieving higher scores on tests commonly used for college and job selection, it teaches that problem solving can be fun and social, and that intelligence can be taught.Changes in the Seventh Edition: New chapter on "open-ended" problem solving that includes inductive and deductive reasoning; extended recommendations to teachers, parents, and tutors about how to use TAPPS instructionally.

Arthur Whimbey, a major player in the critical thinking skills movement, has written numerous books and articles. His books include Intelligence Can Be Taught, Analytical Reading and Reasoning, Analyze, Organize, Write and Problem Solving and Comprehension.
