High Performance Study Skills
This book has two purposes––one of which is to introduce you to the skills you’ll need to do your best in your studies at university. Success–– your success––is what it’s all about! If you take what you learn here and apply it in your courses, you’ll be laying one of the foundations for success––and you’ll be working smart.
The second purpose of this book is to provide a useful reference whenever you need information on these topics.
