The Study Skills Handbook

This practical guide aims to help students maximize their potential during their time at university. From preparing students for what to expect from higher education, encouraging them to think about the skills they already have, providing resources to help them evaluate and manage their own learning and develop good study habits, to helping them understand how learning, intelligence and memory work, the book contains sensible suggestions, self-check tables and lots of illustrations. "The Study Skills Handbook" is a useful companion for any student. The second edition includes two new chapters, one on projects, dissertations, reports and case studies, and one on planning your next move. Other chapters have additional material. For example, there are new sections on independent learning, e-learning, designing your own assignment titles, and writing in analytical rather than descriptive writing styles.
