Pocket Study Skills - Little Books, Big Results

For the time-pushed student, Pocket Study Skills pack a lot of advice into a little book in an entertaining and engaging way. Each guide focuses on a single crucial aspect of study, giving students step by step guidance, handy tips and clear advice on how to approach the important areas which will continually be at the core of their study ethic. The guides are in a small pocket format – not much bigger than a wallet which can easily slip into a pocket or bag.
