At work or at school, requirements rise higher and higher as competition grows fiercer. We are constantly challenged by having to acquire new skills and ideas as those we’ve learned become obsolete. By mastering the seven basic elements of complete study skills included in this book, you can tap into your hidden potential for maximum performance and increased learning power.

This positive guide is ideal for everyone - whether you are a student aiming to get into a post-secondary institution or a graduate programme (or to pass your next exam) or a businessperson aiming at different or higher career goals by upgrading or learning new skills.

This book provides you with key information you need to study successfully in any situation, answering such questions as:

What are the three modes of learning, and which one is right for me?
I have how many “intelligences”?
How important is preparation in studying?
How can I improve my memory and concentration?
Why is goal setting important?
What study tools can I use to improve my studying?
I read my material, but still forget it the next day
What am I doing wrong?
How should I study for exams?

Practical exercises and motivational quotations make the “work” of homework efficient and immediately useful.

This new edition includes: New strategies for time management
New tools for goal setting for maximum results
Discussion of common myths such as speed-reading
Methods to improve memory and concentration
The #1 study skill essential for top grades in any course
