About the Author:

After receiving her MEd in Curriculum and Instruction from the University of Oregon in 1970, Linda Wong started her teaching career in the Springfield School District in Oregon. After six years, Linda left the classroom to start an educational consulting business, which included self-publishing classroom activity books, teaching adjunct courses in the Northwest, and operating a school supply store. In 1983, she returned to the classroom to begin a 22-year teaching career in the Academic Learning Skills Department at Lane Community College in Eugene, Oregon. At Lane, Linda taught developmental education and college study skills courses and actively participated in curriculum development projects, the Women's Transition Program, programs for students with learning disabilities, and the campus Diversity Team. Linda retired and relocated to Las Vegas in 2001 where she explored teaching in a temporary position at a charter school, providing private tutoring for a family of five, and writing training video scripts for online business courses. Linda has continued her involvement in education as an educational consultant, a presenter at national conferences, and an author of several textbooks. After several years of freelancing as a writer of magazine articles and a reviewer for several college textbook publishers, Linda began her career as a textbook writer in 1994 with the first edition of ESSENTIAL STUDY SKILLS. She continues authoring textbooks and exploring other avenues of writing. Linda has one son, Kailee, and four beautiful grandchildren.

Review:

"This text has always met the needs of our community college students. While the text can be used in any post-secondary setting, its total focus on STUDY SKILLS is what has always sold me on the text. Wong has consistently improved her approach to this topic, and the exercises she has included really provide good practice for students. Her textbook layout appeals to students with different learning styles. In addition, no student feels left out (e.g. traditional students vs. non-traditional students, native speakers vs. non-native speakers)."- Karen Fenske, Kishwaukee College

"I believe that some of my favorite features of the book include the use of mapping to get the student focused on the objectives and their relationships; room to write ideas and thoughts as they read; then the breaks of questions, quizzes and exercises to break up their reading. This is important because (including me) students will breeze through text without stopping to think about what they are reading and by having these 'breaks' the student's eyes are drawn to these and may cause them to read that at least and then go back to read if needed."- Valerie Cunningham, Collin College
