Praise for the fourth edition: 'Superbly organised and beautifully laid out, with really helpful worked examples and lots of practical tips, this guide is sensitive to the variety of students' learning styles and the different tasks demanded of them. It's essential reading for students, but it's also an invaluable resource for instructors looking for strategies to enrich their teaching.' - Dr Ian W. Archer, Fellow and Tutor in History, Keble College, University of Oxford, UK 'It was a challenge to update a classic, but Cottrell's guide just gets better and better.' - Tracy Johnson, Skills Development Officer, Careers Service, University of Bristol, UK 'This latest edition brings an already-excellent resource up-to-date, with information about apps for study, mobile learning, and balancing work and study. The Handbook is like an ideal mentor for new students - accessible, informed, friendly, and full of warmth, wisdom, and good advice. Supportive without being patronising, and informative without being bossy, this guide is of direct use for anyone setting out on the adventure of higher education.' - Dr Tim Herrick, Director of Part-time Studies, Institute for Lifelong Learning, University of Sheffield, UK 'Stella Cottrell's The Study Skills Handbook is an accessible and highly user-friendly manual for learning and teaching study skills in higher education. It is set out in an easy to understand manner which makes using it straightforward, with practical exercises throughout, with helpful tables, checklists, e-learning exercises and suggestions on study techniques. The book is already well-known from its previous three editions and is widely used in a broad range of higher education institutions for good reason. The Study Skills Handbook combines excellent pedagogic knowledge on how to study with practical applications. The fourth edition has been extensively revised and includes new materials on research projects, case studies, creative problem-solving and a new chapter on time management. Overall, this is an excellent handbook that should be widely used in higher education by students and teachers of skills alike as an accessible yet comprehensive resource.' - Neil Winn, Senior Lecturer in European Studies, School of Politics & International Studies, University of Leeds, UK Praise for the third edition: Thoroughly deserving of its reputation as the key text in essential study skills. - Dr Murray Simpson, School of Education, Social Work and Community Education, University of Dundee, UK Brilliant book - essential for any undergraduate. - Jenny Fisher, Division of Psychology and Social Change, Manchester Metropolitan University, UK This book just gets better and better. Probably the most user friendly study skills handbook on the market. The extra sections just add to its 'must have' status. - Margo Learmouth, School of Nursing and Midwifery, Robert Gordon University, UK Without this book you can get by just fine with your education, but with it you could be exceptional. - Zac (student) This book literally wills you to succeed, it's inspirational. - Anon (student) Among similar books I think that Cottrell's book stands out in its innovative presentation, common sense approach and practicality...The job of Universities is changing as we can no longer assume that students know how to learn - and so we must guide them. This book is an excellent support for that mission. - Dr Keith Pond, The Business School, Loughborough University, UK Now in its third edition and part of the highly regarded Palgrave Study Skills series, this easy-to-follow guide to university-style study is the perfect first book for new undergraduates. - The Daily Telegraph, UK
