This practical skills guide helps young people with who learn differently including those with dyslexia, DCD/dyspraxia and ADHD, study for their exams.


Students who learn differently can often find exams challenging and can experience a good deal of anxiety around exam time, leading to exam results that may not accurately reflect their capabilities. Much exam stress arises from a lack of confidence with the ability to learn and retain information in a meaningful way. This engaging workbook is designed to help students to overcome these issues. It not only shows students how to develop a positive success attitude towards study and exams, but also aims to equip them with powerful strategies and techniques for learning and remembering.


The book offers strategies for learners whose methods of learning are multisensory. When learning is active rather than passive, it happens faster, and is easier, more enjoyable and more effective. As you progress through the fun, engaging activities, so your confidence and belief in your ability to learn will increase. Struggling students will become confident, successful learners, with a positive attitude and access to a wide range of effective strategies, and in this way, you will achieve the results in exams that you have worked for and deserve.
'Written with sensitivity, the author draws alongside students guiding them to
understand their personal learning needs. The beauty of this book is that it not only
offers practical tips for developing good study habits but also shows learners how these
can be applied in a meaningful way. The book is full of helpful hints, activities and
useful templates for creating resources; it is an invaluable guide for both students and
tutors.' - Anne Robinson, Specialist Tutor
'Ann-Marie's Study Skills Guide is a one-stop shop for all things revision based - from
starting a course through to preparations for the day of the exam. The interactive
nature of the book, with its quizzes and tasks, helps the reader to really engage with its
message. It provides the tools to create positive, effective revision strategies tailored
to an individual's own way of learning. Providing such a wide range of tips and
resources really does make the process feel less onerous and shows learners that
revision can be easier and enjoyable! The strategies in this book will be of huge benefit
to so many students - I will certainly be employing them the with the students I support
at college and with my own children!' - Gwennan Anderson, Study Support, Runshaw
