Overview

This comprehensive text/workbook focuses on getting students actively involved in the learning process, and in learning how to learn. Rather than presenting one prescriptive approach, students take a learning style inventory and are then exposed to strategies that complement their personal learning styles.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
This text provides a step-by-step approach to college study skills, offering strategies for different types of learners and different types of courses. Excerpts from college textbooks in many disciplines help students practice new skills, and some 100 examples show how other students have used the strategies. Self-evaluation activities are included. This fourth edition features a method for students to assess their own learning styles, new material on test taking and overcoming math anxiety, and new key terms and chapter review questions. Van Blerkom is affiliated with the University of Pittsburgh-Johnstown. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
