Review:

"There is no textbook as comprehensive as the Pauk [How to Study in College] textbook! I urge students to buy the book as they would a dictionary or thesaurus AND especially if they plan to transfer. The added content that is now available electronically is perfect because there are times I have to teach this class as an independent study - due to low enrollment - and this is perfect for those students."

"The Concept Maps work effectively to give students "advanced organizers," of the chapter ahead; I point out the concept maps early in the semester and we discuss the ways in which they can be used as a survey tool and, later, as a review tool (because the arrows visually link up the topics in a chapter and because the student can quickly find something to revisit for increased clarification and review)."

About the Author:

A true pioneer in the field of study skills, Dr. Walter Pauk has been dispensing common-sense advice to students for more than half a century. Pauk led the way in advocating the now popular wide margin note-taking strategy commonly known as the Cornell System. A licensed psychologist and trusted teacher, Pauk was director of the Reading-Study Center at Cornell University, where he earned his PhD in Psychology and Education and remains Professor Emeritus. He is the author of more than 100 books.
