"There is no textbook as comprehensive as the Pauk [How to Study in College] textbook! I urge students to buy the book as they would a dictionary or thesaurus AND especially if they plan to transfer. The added content that is now available electronically is perfect because there are times I have to teach this class as an independent study - due to low enrollment - and this is perfect for those students."
"The Concept Maps work effectively to give students "advanced organizers," of the chapter ahead; I point out the concept maps early in the semester and we discuss the ways in which they can be used as a survey tool and, later, as a review tool (because the arrows visually link up the topics in a chapter and because the student can quickly find something to revisit for increased clarification and review)."
About the Author
A true pioneer in the field of study skills, Dr. Walter Pauk has been dispensing common-sense advice to students for more than half a century. Pauk led the way in advocating the now popular wide margin note-taking strategy commonly known as the Cornell System. A licensed psychologist and trusted teacher, Pauk was director of the Reading-Study Center at Cornell University, where he earned his PhD in Psychology and Education and remains Professor Emeritus. He is the author of more than 100 books.
A long-time collaborator with Dr. Walter Pauk, Ross Owens earned his BA cum laude in English and film at Carleton College and did graduate work in film at the University of Iowa and the University of Maryland, where he also taught film history, filmmaking, and public speaking. Since first teaming with Dr. Pauk in 1982, Owens has contributed to a number of books on reading and study skills. In addition, he has written numerous articles on Internet-related topics and is an accomplished computer programmer.

I work with MANY college students to whom I have imparted Walter Pauk's sage advice for years! Part of the value I found (and still find) in the book are wonderful notations I made IN the book while I was reading it - a technique Pauk instructs and reinforces in the text. Students need that "active learning" for this text-engagement to be meaningful. Therefore, "renting" this book is ludicrous!! I still find value in returning to my old notes and thoughts 30+ years later!
Most alarming though is the simple fact that my students who often need this wisdom and active learning the most are totally not capable of dishing out $110+ for a "How to" book. These students are barely able to make tuition payments!!!!
Come on, Cengage....cut these students a break and get this book into the hands (and minds) of those who need it most!!!!!
In the meantime....folks, the 2nd edition (my old reliable) is available to purchase here on Amazon for less than a buck. ;-)
P.s. I am buying another one.
