5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Friend January 13, 2010
By Lynn M.
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I first used this book to teach a study skills course at a community college in the 80's. I never forgot it because it is so simplistic, yet thorough!. I was so glad to see it was still available and in print. When I received it, I said, "Yes!" Now, I can use this wonderful resource to help my middle schoolers prepare for the state exams. The test-taking section is great!

5.0 out of 5 stars Interesting format May 21, 2004
Format:Paperback
This book is written for an individual that needs to find out how things work and how to get where they want to go. In other words, almost everybody. It really is a self-teaching guide. As you begin to read the book, you are instructed to go to a different section depending on your answers to questions. That way, you are finding out specifically what you need, and don't have to wade through lots of information that would apply to others, but not necessarily yourself. Not only does it cover 'making it in the system' it also goes over Improving General Reading Ability, Reading Textbooks, Writing Short Papers, Writing Term Papers, and taking Exams. Very useful.
