Only for complete beginners.,
This review is from: The Arts Good Study Guide (Open University Set Book) (Paperback)
I got this book as I am studying for a Humanities degree with the OU. I have found it to be totally useless, unless you are a complete beginner to study. I admit that there are probably a few pertinent points in there, but mainly it is just common sense. I have even spoken with some people who work for the OU at Milton Keynes who felt that it was a waste of money to buy it. I really think that if you are studing at Degree level you should not need this book. If you want to think about the OU courses then the book may be useful. I only gave it 2 stars because it may be of use to others.

This book was written with its main purpose being to help students develop essential skills required for successful study, particularly those who are returning to study after a long break. It aims to build students' confidence in their studies and has helped thousands of students over the years. It is good to see that you already feel this way about your skills.
