"Academic success is rooted in a number of factors, of which 'intelligence' is
only one. Attitude and beliefs, and knowledgeable strategy use, are critical.
This is the core message of this collection of articles and research
reports on study skills from the author's websites, arranged and edited for greater
cohesiveness. Its aim is to describe and provide evidence for concepts and strategies that may
change your approach to teaching or studying.

The book contains articles on:
  • personal factors that affect academic achievement: motivation,
    persistence, anxiety, intelligence, self-regulation
  • choosing strategies that are effective for the situation
  • what 'transfer' is and why it's important
  • how experts develop expertise
  • the idea of 'desirable difficulties'
  • the limits of memorization and rote learning
  • some useful strategies in:
    • reading
    • note-taking
    • reaching understanding.
This book is for students who are serious about being successful in study, and
teachers who want to know how best to help their students learn.
As always with the Mempowered books, the short book is fully referenced."

Interesting that 75 per cent of the reviews are from India.
Thanks- just tried it. It’s like someone bound together a few academic papers so it’s a bit dry in places and a bit loose in others, like someone is summarising the findings - but it’s fine and I’ll be reading it
It's a book... turned me straight off learning
