The Business Student¿s Handbook Third Edition

Learning skills for study and employment

 

Sheila Cameron

 

More than just a study skills book!

 

The Business Student¿s Handbook integrates study skills, interpersonal skills and work skills to help students gain better marks in their study and to transfer those skills for success in the workplace. The broad range of topics covered includes:

 

  • Study skills such as essay writing, exam technique and managing one¿s studies.
  • Interpersonal skills such as teamwork, communication and presenting.
  • Work skills such as exploring problems, managing projects and improving creativity.

 

Skills are improved by doing, rather than reading, so this book comes with an extensive bank of exercises and activities, both in the text and online, to help students assess their strengths and to build a personal development plan to improve on weaker areas.

 

Examples of activities include quizzes on stress, time management and confidence. There are checklists for essay planning, job application and interviews; exercises on how to deconstruct exam questions and work with case studies, and basic maths and grammar helpfiles for practice and reference.

 

This new edition has more content covering the key issues for today¿s students, such as critical thinking and plagiarism, and more colour and new illustrations make this edition even more readable.

 

Activities are fully supported with resource materials and teaching notes for lecturers and both student and lecturer resources are available for free at www.pearsoned.co.uk/cameron.

 

 

Sheila Cameron has worked for the Open University Business School since its inception. She has been involved in its MBA programme in a variety of roles, including a period as MBA Director and is also the author of The MBA Handbook Fifth Edition.
