I am studying DTLLS part time in the evening, and this means whilst in the classroom and wishing to learn, the mixture of tiredness and theory tends to lessen the learning experience. The learning theorist aspect of DTLLS can seem daunting but luckily a friend of mine pointed me towards this book.
The book identifies the three main strands of theory and identifies all the theorists connected. However its key quality is in the writing style which is set at a level which allows a non academic to understand and actually enjoy reading. It was a god send to my work on the learning area of the syllabus and help take me from a very big low of questioning whether I could complete DTLLS to a position of confidence. Well worth the price!!

I am studying for my PGCE in the Lifelong Learning Sector and found this book excellent for one of my first year assignments. I like to own books so that I can highlight useful areas of text for quick review later, however I found myself wanting to highlight practically all of it. The book is well structured and easy to read, it gives you a broad view of theories and their implications for practice, you can use the references to source further reading if you want to go into any one area in more depth.
