Developing Essential Study Skills 2nd edition

The time spent at university offers great potential for change. Being able to study effectively will allow you to gain more enjoyment and fulfilment from the changes that you will encounter. Aimed at students starting university, this book and accompanying Online Resources will give you the skills that you need to cope with the different expectations of study at a Higher Education level.

There is an increasing trend in universities and colleges towards independent learning, so moving towards independence in studying as quickly as possible is a major key to success. This practical book is aimed at helping you become a more independent learner, which will empower you to study more effectively and efficiently.

It concentrates on the trends towards self-learning and takes an 'active learning' approach within the text. 

  • Learning Outcomes at the start of every chapter are the ‘map’ you can look at to decide whether you possess a particular study skill at a sufficient level of proficiency.
  • Activities and Exercises are designed to enable you to practice different aspects of the study skill, to improve your skills and track your progress.
  • Checklists and Suggestions provide the essentials that enable you to know ‘how to do’ something quickly.
  • Stop & Think and Remember boxes encourage reflection on your progress.
  • Chapter summaries will enable you to identify whether you have achieved what the chapter intended.
  • Extra online content, activities and templates will help you to monitor, improve an demonstrate your skills in a Portfolio to take to employers in line with Government requirements.

Straightforward language and a pragmatic approach make this an ideal book for pre-university students, those just starting university and for those studying in the UK for the first time. This is a ‘how to do it’ book based on years of knowledge, experience and practice that will enable you to achieve success in your studies.

Elaine Payne and Lesley Whittaker are both at Leeds Business School, Leeds Metropolitan University.  They have taught an innovative skills programme for many years.
