Learning how to study is learning how to learn. Yes, How to Study includes hints, advice, and techniques for taking notes in class, while you’re reading your textbooks, in the library, and online; how to prepare for tests; and how to organize your study schedule to get the best results in the shortest amount of time. But that’s only half of the book.
There are essential skills you may think have nothing to do with studying, and important steps you need to take right from the start. Developing great study habits is like a foot race between you and your friends. Before you can declare a winner, you have to agree on where the finish line is.
In other words, how do you measure your ability to use these skills? What’s good? What’s poor? But you can’t even start the race until you know where the starting line is—especially if it’s drawn at a different spot for each of you!
There is no magic elixir in the study habit regimen. If math and science are not your strong suits, memorizing How to Study will not transform you into a Nobel Prize-winning physicist. Nobody is great at everything, but everybody is great at something. So you’ll also get a chance to rate the subjects you like and dislike, plus those classes you do best and worst in.
‘Learn as though you would never be able to master it; hold it as if you would be in fear of losing it”
