Summary Note THE STUDY BOOK is a practical guide to developing the academic skills you need to succeed at university, college or any higher level study. Learn how to think, research, debate, write about, and apply information - and do all the things that will directly impact on your academic success from the moment you start. It guides you through activities and processes to help you examine your learning abilities and experiences so far. It will help you to understand your particular preferences and styles, your natural advantages as well as any specific weaknesses, and then guide you to build an effective personal approach to studying. You will learn what you need to do to do well in your course, like completing high quality assignments, writing essays, and showing off your full understanding in exams. Along the way you'll find emergency tips to inject into realistic situations like when struggling with the dynamics in a group-working situation, lost in planning a complex assignment, or getting stressed in the days before an exam. It contains specific reminders about academic conventions, definitions of terminology, useful checklists to support tasks, and simplified processes to keep you on track. There are insights from other students, example scenarios, and short case-studies, all designed to root the advice in real academic context, and keep you focused on what you need to do to keep improving.
