by Gary Wood
Letters to a New Student is a study skills book with a twist.
You decide how to read it. Based on a series of short, informal, problem page letters that you can read in any order, the book uses principles of human psychology, teaching, and coaching practice to offer a refreshing approach to study skills and learning techniques.
The letters form a brief 'survive and thrive' study guide to work smarter not harder and offer advice on topics such as motivation, stress, revision, and assignments.
It's a tried-and-tested, blueprint to make information stick with less effort. The book takes a holistic approach to learning. It covers health and wellbeing, the 'nuts-and-bolts' shortcuts, the obstacles, and the pitfalls.
It also includes short learning principles and cross-references to other entries, with practical advice in response to the frequently asked questions many students ask during their studies. Letters to a New Student is for any student under pressure, parents and family who want to offer support, or anyone with interest in lifelong learning.
It's written by a psychologist, teacher, academic coach, and advice columnist, with over 20 years professional experience.
