Reviews

An outstanding handbook which enables learners to actively identify, reflect and develop their 'skills' to enable them to succeed as life-long learners. The authors present the 'how to' alongside the 'what' of study skills to enable continuous personal development, in an accessible style.

A great book to keep close to you while you develop during your degree. You're not expected to be perfect after years of practice, let alone after a single term in your fresher year. This book helps you to understand that, yet at the same time helps you strive to bring out your best at all times. (review of 3rd edition)
