The third edition of this lively and stimulating book offers an enlightening new approach to effective study. Without minimising the importance of good organisation and hard work, the author stresses throughout that study must and can be fun. To experience the real benefits to be gained from study requires a positive, self directed approach. The advice offered in this book, therefore, will help the student find and adopt the study methods most suited to his/her needs. There are detailed chapters on memory and review; essay planning and writing; speed-reading; taking notes; how best to use both teachers and computers; and a substantial section on examination techniques. Suitable for all students studying for A Levels and undergraduate degrees.
