As a professional and student I would recommend this book to anyone interested in improving their study skills.

Students are not taught how to be successful in the classroom. They are bombarded with information and expected to retain it. This is an excellent tool to be successful, not only for the classroom, but in improving everyday learning.

Like most people I went through my whole education without being taught how to study.

I used to read, take notes, read a bit more and take some more notes. I would do this for up to 3 hours.

This book has shown me a completely different approach. I now use time differently - shorter sessions, but much more effective ones. The review process is particularly useful.

I have already found my recall to improve dramatically and I expect it will only improve the more I use the 8 step plan outlined in the book.

Highly recommended for anybody learning reams of information. Relevant for business and education (both of my children are using it). The plan is easy to follow and the results are both quick and impressive.

Nina Sunday's book, Brainpower Smart Study is a must guide for any student. This book shows you how to study in a smarter way. Like most people, I went through my entire education without being taught how to study.

Brainpower Smart Study provides practical tips and strategies in an easy to follow step-by-step manner. Most importantly, it gives structure to the study process.

It also describes methods for reading faster, using time effectively and excellent note-taking strategies.

One of the useful aspects of the 8-step study method described in the book is that it includes ways for a student to test themselves prior to the time they really need to know the information. This reduces the stress associated with tests and gives students the confidence that they will recall information in an upcoming exam.

I am using the 8-step study method and find it extremely valuable to help me remember information I'm researching.

This book is easy to read and would be helpful for school students, university students or anybody who needs to retain information and recall it effectively.

What a great book! I wish I'd had this resource when I was studying at university. Nina Sunday has put together an excellent short book on how to get the best from your study efforts.

The book lists eight steps in a smart study method. Each step makes good common sense and is also backed by sound research and/or the author's years of experience helping students prepare for exams.

The book is well written. Short chapters (2 to 3 pages), with very clear sentences and good examples to illustrate key points, makes it very easy for the reader to follow and "learn how to learn". Each chapter concludes with the key point and how it can be best implemented.

I've used and been familiar with many of the techniques covered in the book. Most of us probably have. However, it's the way these are built into the eight step study method that makes this book so effective.

If you have the need to study and remember information, then this book is definitely a must. As stated in the PR blurb, "Every student needs to read this book". For once, I totally agree with the PR. So, if you know of anyone who is studying at the moment or about to start a course of study, I'd recommend buying "Brainpower Smart Study" and giving it to them as a present. The few dollars spent will be one of the best investments you could ever make in their future development.
