What a great book! I wish I’d had this resource when I was studying at university. Nina Sunday has put together an excellent short book on how to get the best from your study efforts.

The book lists eight steps in a smart study method. Each step makes good common sense and is also backed by sound research and/or the author’s years of experience helping students prepare for exams.

The book is well written. Short chapters (2 to 3 pages), with very clear sentences and good examples to illustrate key points, makes it very easy for the reader to follow and “learn how to learn”. Each chapter concludes with the key point and how it can be best implemented.

I’ve used and been familiar with many of the techniques covered in the book. Most of us probably have. However, it’s the way these are built into the eight step study method that makes this book so effective.

If you have the need to study and remember information, then this book is definitely a must. As stated in the PR blurb, “Every student needs to read this book”. For once, I totally agree with the PR. So, if you know of anyone who is studying at the moment or about to start a course of study, I’d recommend buying “Brainpower Smart Study” and giving it to them as a present. The few dollars spent will be one of the best investments you could ever make in their future development.
