Skills in learning and studying are vital to ensure success in higher education study, whether at undergraduate or postgraduate level, in university, college or in the workplace. Skills are needed in reflection, analysis, communication and recording information to produce good work, to engage effectively in a group, to carry out a project or perform well in exams; personal skills are needed to handle time and pressure and to relate to others on a course or in the workplace. This new guide builds on the hugely successful materials the authors have developed over the last 15 years. Along with highly practical guidance on traditional learning skills, "The Guide to Study Skills" provides guidance for students on learning in a blended environment; the increased use of personal and professional development planning, continuing professional development and work-based learning. 'The Virtual Learning Edition' offers a series of electronic masters that may be uploaded to your organization's learning system and circulated for use by all students within the licensed institution.
