This is an inspirational, motivational and more importantly an essential resource to enable all students to gain the skills to promote learning, understanding, and confidence to succeed. The authors have tackled key issues of enabling the reader to gain skills of learning - smart rather than hard, whilst managing stress, dealing with previous failure, the negative inner voice, time management and gaining awareness of what positive people do. This book is more than a “learning to learn” text, it is a practical guide to promote self motivation, determination, and personal skills. It gives skills and strategies to overcome the “that's impossible” voice and promote the “I can do it” attitude by working smart ;
Highly recommended for teachers and tutors at all levels.
