I'm a college student that's neck deep in anatomy/phys and biochem. Over the last year I've been looking for a way in which to learn and study more efficiently due to the large workload and complexity of the information presented. So I bought Essential Study Skills for Science Students in the hopes that it wouldn't be as lame as all the other how-to-study books I've purchased that are now taking up space in my local landfill.

I give this guide a 4 out of 5 stars but that rating is relative to the glut of absolutely useless study-help books on the market. However, the difference between Essential Study Skills for Science Students and the rest is that it's actually useful and to the point. Better stated, it's useful because it gets right to the point. There's no fluff, no trying to be cute. While it presents much of the same information that its competitors do, it gives the same information stated in a way that's simple to employ without any large, complex system. There's no life advice and no inter-chapter testimonials from students who went from failing Art History to Magna Cum Laude in physics in just two semesters because they bought this wonderful, magical, easy to use self-help book(I think it's obvious I've come to detest these types of books).

Anyway...

The section on how to get the most out of reading material was especially helpful to me as was the section on critical thinking. The latter is very general and if you're familiar with critical thinking, it's not anything new. But it was a good, quick refresher that reminded me of some very basic things and it's worth going back and referencing on occassion. It's a short book that I read in under an hour; and I liked that. It allowed me to make notes from it and put the stuff into practice the very same day.

This little book will help to unfold the mystery of doing great in school. While the title targets science students, the helpful hints in this book will help all students within in an educational process from high school through to college.
This book even helped a student who was doing a Criminal Justice degree Online.
Preparing for courses is not hard however, as the text will point out, it takes discipline. The book will point you in the right direction so the needed discipline will seem like common sense.

Work Smarter - Not Harder!
There is no reason not to do well in your classes after utilizing this well-written book on good study habits.

Study Well.

More About the Author

Dan Chiras paid his last electric bill in June of 1996. It is not that he has disavowed the use
of electricity and modern conveniences, but rather that he has turned to the sun and wind
to meet his family's needs.

In 1995, Dan, a former full-time college professor with years of experience in sustainable
development, built a state-of-the-art rammed earth tire and straw bale home in
Evergreen, Colorado. He installed solar electric panels on the roof; a year or so later he
installed a small wind generator. Since that time, he has met nearly all of his electrical
needs for his home and office from these clean, renewable sources.

Dan also heats his home in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains 8000-feet above sea level
with energy from the sun thanks to passive solar design. For backup heat on those cold
winter nights, he burns a cord of wood a year, gathered free from his community. His
annual gas bill, mostly for showers and cooking, runs about $120 a year - about $2 to $3
per month for natural gas and $10 per month to read the meter!

Dan has spent much of the past 30 years studying sustainability and applying what he has
learned in solar energy, natural building, and green building to his residences, and most of
the last ten years sharing the practical knowledge he has gained through writing, lectures,
slide shows, and workshops.

Dan has published 21 books to date including several college and high school textbooks:
Environmental Science: Creating a Sustainable Future, Natural Resource Conservation,
Human Biology, and Biology: The Web of Life. His high school environmental
science text, Environmental Science, was selected as the official book of the U.S.
Academic Decathlon's 1991 competition.

In the early 1990s, Dan published two trade books on environmental issues and
sustainability for a general audience: Beyond the Fray: Reshaping America's
Response and Lessons from Nature: Learning to Live Sustainably on the
Earth.

Since 1995, Dan has focused most of his attention on residential green building. He
has written extensively on the subject. His is books include: The Natural House: A
Complete Guide to Healthy, Energy Efficient, Environmental Homes; The Natural Plaster
Book; The Solar House: Passive Heating and Cooling; Superbia! 31 Ways to Create
Sustainable Suburbs; and The New Ecological Home.

His newest book, EcoKids: Raising Kids Who Care for the Earth will be
published in the Spring of 2005 by New Society Publishers.

Dan also writes extensively for magazines, journals, newsletters, and newspapers. He
has published nearly 250 articles on environmental issues, sustainability, natural building,
natural plaster, green building, and passive solar heating and cooling. His articles appear
regularly in Home Power, Mother Earth News, Natural Home, and The Last
Straw.

Dan also writes frequently for World Book Encyclopedia (Science Year) and
Encyclopedia Americana. He authored a 12-page article on the environment for
Encyclopedia Americana. Dan has written environmental pollution section for
World Book Encyclopedia's annual publication, Science Year, since 1993.
In 1997, he wrote an extensive piece for World Book on population growth and its
many implications. Dan also wrote the ecology and air pollution sections for
Encyclopedia Americana.

In addition to his writing, Dan has served as an adjunct professor at the University of
Colorado in Denver and the University of Colorado at Denver. He has been a visiting
professor at the University of Washington, where he taught a course on environmental
science. He currently is a Melon Visiting Professor at Colorado College where he teaches
courses on renewable energy, ecological design, and sustainable development.

Through his writing and teaching in the 1980s and early 1990s, Dan played a leading
role in promoting critical thinking, an understanding of the root causes of environmental
issues, systemic solutions to environmental problems, sustainable development. He
pioneered a systems approach to sustainable development and has played a lead role in
articulating the principles, policies, and practices of sustainable development which seeks
ways that business and society can prosper within a healthy environment. He is currently
focusing most of his research and writing on sustainable building and sustainable
communities.

Dan's free time is spent mountain biking, canoeing, playing music, and gardening.
