Learn to Study: For Success at College and University

Going to college or university is an exciting yet daunting experience for many students. It's exciting because you can study interesting subjects, make new friends and pursue new hobbies in college. But it's also daunting because in order to get a successful academic education, you will have to accept personal responsibility for a task for which you have received little or no special training in school.

Publisher's Summary

Going to college or university is an exciting yet daunting experience for many students. It's exciting because you can study interesting subjects, make new friends, and pursue new hobbies in college. But it's also daunting, because in order to get a successful academic education, you will have to accept personal responsibility for a task for which you have received little or no special training in school. This task requires you to manage your own learning or to become an active, independent, and self-motivated student when it comes to planning, conducting, and evaluating your academic work. For example, it's up to you whether you go to lectures in the first place. And it's up to you whether you spend your time studying in the library or going shopping. And it's your business, not that of your lecturers, to make sure that you don't fall behind in your studies.

Put simply, if you don't want your free time in college to become wasted time, you will have to master a number of study skills that were not taught earlier in school. For example, you will have to learn to listen and write at the same time when taking lecture notes in class. And you'll have to learn to study effectively - or read with a question in mind. Of course, you'll also have to master the art of getting down to study regardless of the mood you're in. But most of all, you'll have to learn to think for yourself - the true hallmark of an educated mind.

Put simply, as you can see, your biggest challenge in the years ahead is to manage your own learning effectively. The good news is that by listening to this audio presentation, you've already taken a step in the right direction.

    This book has some good ideas but some are not as practical for the busy student (one study spot)
