Of course, the book is a little outdated but the principles hold good. Despite the modern trends in education, and particularly at the college level, little within the book has diminished in relevance.
Northedge is especially good at providing succinct direction in clear and lucid language, hardly surprising as the target audience is the adult learner who has been away from school or study for a number of years. In fact, I would consider this to be a major selling point and the continued success of the Open University in Great Britain is a testament to the work that has gone into this student manual.
I would highly recommend this book to students of all ages in preparation for the voyage of discovery that is higher education.
Easy to read and follow this book is presented in a fun way that is self-explanatory and enjoyable. If you study from home via an online course or are a member of the Open University, then this book is extremely useful as it contains so much information; it is really like having your own personal tutor at home. I would highly recommend that you acquire this book before you begin your course, as you will find it most useful from day one right through the entire time that you have to study your chosen subject. It is a truly comprehensive good read that is well thought-out and crafted, so that you enjoy your subject and learn to make the most of the time that you have to study in. Customer friendly this is a superb catalogue of helpful advice that does exactly what it says it does by being `a good study guide'. This book has been so helpful over the years from when I was taking A' Levels at College to studying English and doing revision for various other examinations right through to University, hence I cannot recommend it enough. Studying is not easy and it can become dull, being hard to maintain that enthusiasm after pouring over books and notes for hours on end but this book makes it fun and never leaves you with nothing to do; every minute that you have to study is spent wisely.
