Learnin how to study is learning how to learn. And that is, to me, the greatest gift you can ever give yourself… or your children.
Having stated that so boldly, I suspect I still have to convince some of you that spending any time trying to master this stuff -studying, learning, reading, note taking, writing- is worth your while.
There are, of course, some terrific reasons why you should learn how to study, why you really must learn how to study. But before I start convincing you that developing proper study skills is important -and why- let’s figure out exactly what we mean by “study skills” so we’re all on the same wavelength.
Yes, How to Study includes hints, advice, and techniques for taking notes in class, while you’re reading your textbooks, in the library, and online; how to prepare for tests; and how to organize your study schedule to get the best results in the shortest amount of time. But that’s only half of the book How to Study . There are essential skills you may think have nothing to do with studying, and important steps you need to take right from the start.

Who Is This Book How to Study Really For?
While I originally wrote How to Study for high school students, I’ve discovered over the years that I could probably count on only a couple of hands the number of such students who actually bought a copy of the book how to study.
The surprise was that so many of the people buying How to Study (and writing me reams of letters along the way) were adults. Yes, a number of them were returning to school and saw How to Study as a great refresher. And some were long out of school but had figured out that if they can learn now the study skills their teachers never taught them (or they never took the time to learn), they will do better in their careers.
All too many were parents who had the same lament: “How do I get Johnny to read (study, do better on tests, remember more, get better grades)? If all his classes were on PlayStation, he’d be an A student!”
So I want to briefly take the time to address every one of the audiences for this book How to Study and discuss some of the factors particular to each of you.
