Whether you aspire to make the very most of your study-time or are charged with enabling others toward that aim, the stories and case studies in The Psychology of Effective Studying bring a vast array of breakthrough strategies to life. Dr Paul Penn’s insight and understanding skilfully inform each and every page of this compendium, aimed squarely at those of us who are committed to making success-stories of our personal, professional and academic endeavours.
Brilliant in its approachability, it’s packed from start to finish with sound principles, insights and techniques. Every page is a call to arms, with immediately practical guidelines for concentrating your thoughts and emotions, and an incentive to more fully embrace the psychology which underpins nearly every aspect of academic attainment. A must-have for your bookshelf.
