This guide to study skills is essential reading for students going to university for the first time. Whether it is read before or alongside a study skills module, Developing Essential Study Skills will enable students to gain the necessary skills and confidence to really make the most of time at university. The aim is to equip students with the key skills to enable success in the highly competitive era of mass higher education, and to cope with the increasing trend toward independent study and lifelong learning.
