About the Author:

Donald Currie worked as a personnel officer for over 15 years before joining Southampton Institute as a lecturer in Personnel Management. For over 10 years he led the CIPD Professional Education Scheme and since retiring, in 1995, Donald has worked as a consultant to the Southampton Business School, and has been running the CIPD-CPP Course.


"This is a lovely book, which is a must for all students following a business studies degree or a professional qualification such as the CIPD PDS qualification. It is written in a very clear, student-friendly way with lots of activities and exercises that are designed to engage the student and ensure that learning becomes an active process and that the student starts to learn how to learn. There is a great deal of useful advice about study skills which is designed to support students who are either new to studying in a university, or to refresh and update the skills of those who have been studying for some years." Caroline Hook, Senior Lecturer in Human Resource Management, Huddersfield University Business School."
