Re: A General Science Refresher
I wouldn't discount media other than books. Try the BBC documentary "The Story of Science" on DVD or Blu-ray. http://www.amazon.com/Story-Science-...4302046&sr=1-1
There is also a book that goes with the series.
Alternatively, there are a large number of free science videos on iTunes.
