The Study Skills handbook draws on the real experiences and difficulties faced by today's students. If you are finding it hard to manage your time or learn anything from lectures, unsure about how best to tackle an essay assignment, or worried about coping with research or revision, this book will help you meet the challenge. Carefully designed to be easy to dip into, you can use it either as a handy reference as and when needed, or read it in stages as you progress through your course. This third edition includes two new chapters, one on 'Projects, dissertations, reports and case studies', and one on 'Planning your next move'. There is additional material on independent learning, e-learning, designing your own assignment titles, and writing in analytical rather than descriptive writing styles.

Key features include:

  • Self-check tables
  • Tips on time management
  • Practical, no-nonsense advice
  • Lots of illustrations.

Whether you are going to college straight from school, returning to education as a mature student, or beginning study in the UK for the first time, The Study Skills Handbook will prove an essential guide throughout your time at college or university.
