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 'A comprehensive, practical and extremely user-friendly guide to studying at university and a crucial addition to any student's book list. This indispensable resource is full of useful suggestions, checklists and examples, with advice on how the latest technology can enhance and support study. Taking a holistic view of what being a student involves, this book empowers, informs and guides students to use the personal and physical resources at their disposal to become reflective, active and independent learners.' - Sarah McCarthy, Academic Skills Adviser, University of Exeter, UK 'The book offers a "one-stop shop" for the wide and varying area of study skills. It successfully and clearly pulls together a broad range of skills from personal to academic. Although aimed specifically at students in HE, readers from most levels of study would find sections of this text helpful in understanding and broadening their skills... The ability to encompass the diverse needs and capabilities of students across sectors and disciplines is a real achievement... As a study skills 'starter for 10' readers would be hard pushed to find a better beginning.' - Emma Nelson, Student Experience Manager (Sociology & Social Policy), University of Leeds, 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 'The fourth edition of The Study Skills Handbook offers friendly, accessible and adaptable advice on a variety of learning styles, intellectual instincts and self-development trajectories, effectively encouraging students to take an active interest in identifying, acquiring and honing those study skills optimal for sustaining their individual appreciation of a rigorous liberal arts and sciences programme.' - Dr Cissi
