By mastering the seven basic elements of complete study skills included in this book, you can tap into your hidden potential for maximum performance and increased learning power. This positive guide is ideal for everyone — whether you are a student aiming to get into a post-secondary institution or a graduate program (or to pass your next exam) or a businessperson aiming at different or higher career goals by upgrading or learning new skills. Practical exercises and motivational quotations make the "work" of homework efficient and immediately useful.
