Product description

As there is no one correct way to learn, this book offers a range of techniques to help students succeed in formal education. It emphasizes the discovery and development of students' own learning needs, and the techniques which best suit an individual student. This second edition includes: new study techniques and advice based on current learning theory and research; updates on matters such as correct referencing; information on using computers; fuller recognition of the diverse backgrounds of students; and further revisions based on suggestions of students and teachers who have used the first edition.
