Product description


'Thoroughly deserving of its reputation as the key text in essential study skills.' - Dr Murray Simpson, School of Education, Social Work and Community Education, University of Dundee, UK 'Brilliant book - essential for any undergraduate.' - Jenny Fisher, Division of Psychology and Social Change, Manchester Metropolitan University, UK '...a practical no-nonsense guide that gets you to the core of the learning process.' - Business Executive 'This book just gets better and better. Probably the most user friendly study skills handbook on the market. The extra sections just add to its 'must have' status.' - Margo Learmouth, School of Nursing and Midwifery, Robert Gordon University, UK 'Without this book you can get by just fine with your education, but with it you could be exceptional.' - Zac (student) 'This book literally wills you to succeed, it's inspirational.' - Anon (student) 'Among similar books I think that Cottrell's book stands out in its innovative presentation, common sense approach and practicality...The job of Universities is changing as we can no longer assume that students know how to learn -- and so we must guide them. This book is an excellent support for that mission.' - Dr Keith Pond, The Business School, Loughborough University, UK 'Concise, clearly laid out and covering a wide range of subjects' -- Victor Glynn, Oxford University 'Now in its third edition and part of the highly regarded Palgrave Study Skills series, this easy-to-follow guide to university-style study is the perfect first book for new undergraduates.' - The Daily Telegraph
