An open letter to the students who will benefit from this book: You have no doubt begun a journey of education that will take you far. The roadway you have chosen will not always be clear, for there are bumps, twists, and turns that no one can anticipate. Maybe you have started this journey before—maybe this is your first venture into higher education. Whatever your destination and regardless of your starting point, all is not lost; hope abounds.
This book is intended to assist you in your journey by providing some practical, tried, and proven techniques that will make you a better student. It will challenge you and ask you to examine certain assumptions you have about studying and your ability to study. Although it is intended to be a guide, it will not answer all of your questions. Much of what you will learn will be through self-discovery and self-analysis. It is our hope that you will be better able to manage your time and your life after completing this text.
Good habits take time to develop and you will no doubt become discouraged somewhere along the way. Stay the course, stay on track, and make your dreams and goals your reality. We wish you well on your journey and trust that you will receive practical information here that will ultimately help all of your "roadways" lead to success!
