Format: Paperback
Dr. Locke's book is a concise, well-written presentation of the essentials of effective study methods. He presents at least one important topic (study monitoring, i.e., consciously keeping track of the effectiveness of one's study efforts) that I have not seen covered in other similar works. I have used this book profitably in some of my own mind self-management seminars for students.

Format: Paperback
This book provides an informative base for sound study skills. The methods presented are very basic and fundamental to the subject of effective study. The concepts will not seem new to most readers but their integration into a logical structure for studying may well be. There exists a few typographical errors in the text and the exercises included could be improved somewhat. Overall a good (but not great) book. Also, it should be noted that this book is geared towards those just entering college.

10 of 10 people found the following review helpful By Adrian Buckland on August 30, 2002
Format: Paperback
A very well structured and easy to read little book. While there is certainly no ground breaking material here, it does a solid job of intergrating the basic principles of objectivism into study, such as objectivity, rationality, and purpose. I found the sections on active reading, motivational monitoring, and exam-taking especially useful. Since the exercises at the end of the chapters are time-consuming, I only skim read them, but I was still able to get a lot out of this book. Although there are countless study guides out there which all offer basically the same tips and techniques, this one is a gem. I recommend it to any student looking to fufill their potential.

Format: Paperback
This book is full of tips you can start using immediately. What is the most efficient way to study? What specific techniques can you use to program your memory? How can you effectively plan your time? How can you cope with "failure"? or test anxiety? What are some motivational tips? It is an excellent book to help keep you motivated and give you lifetime thinking skills.
