Review quote

FOUNDATION STUDIES FOR CARING & FOUNDATION SKILLS FOR CARING: 'I look forward to seeing them on the shelves. I think they will be a sensation when they arrive and will change the future direction of CFP theory' - Graham MacIntosh, University of Glasgow, UK THE STUDY SKILLS HANDBOOK 'This book just gets better and better. Probably the most user friendly study skills handbook on the market. The extra sections just add to its 'must have' status.' - Margo Learmouth, School of Nursing and Midwifery, Robert Gordon University, UK 'Thoroughly deserving of its reputation as the key text in essential study skills.' - Dr Murray Simpson, School of Education, Social Work and Community Education, University of Dundee, UK 'Brilliant book - essential for any undergraduate.' - Jenny Fisher, Division of Psychology and Social Change, Manchester Metropolitan University, UK 'Among similar books I think that Cottrell's book stands out in its innovative presentation, common sense approach and practicality...The job of Universities is changing as we can no longer assume that students know how to learn -- and so we must guide them. This book is an excellent support for that mission.' - Dr Keith Pond, The Business School, Loughborough University, UK
