Part 1 unwraps the mysteries of conceptual thinking, with chapters on how to create new concepts and analyse existing ones, while Part 2 shows students how to release their creative potential and devise original solutions to complex problems. Finally, Part 3 shows students how to assess their ideas and solutions and come to a rational, objective decision. Chapters are packed with examples, top tips and 'try this' activities for students to put their thinking skills to the test.

Smart Thinking will be an indispensable companion for students of all levels and disciplines who want to sharpen their thinking and improve the way they study.


Smart Thinking Reviews

'I think every single student should have a copy of this book. The majority of university courses lack a 'how to think smarter' module which would go a long way in helping students fine-tune their thinking skills for higher education.' - Michael Tefula, recent graduate and author of How to Get a First and Student Procrastination
