For students 13 through college graduation, Christine Reidhead’s guide to building study skills is an extremely important book for those who want to secure their future through good grades.Too many students’ grades are falling, especially in a time when regular classrooms cannot fully open. Parents everywhere are at a loss regarding what to do with their responsibilities in the face of the increasing downturn in their children’s grades. It seems as though, with the advent of social media, the attention of a lot of students has been shifted from their books to their smartphones or computers. Apart from social media, blame has also been put on a decline in the interest of students regarding education in general. Students, at the moment, do not have the motivation or zeal, as it seems, to even study.

Good study habits, or skills, are solutions to the problems experienced by students. This has been true for a long time, but the world is changing rapidly, which also means that the tools employed during study have to be changed in order to keep up.

This is especially true as a result of the covid-19 pandemic that has forced students to study and learn from home rather than in the classroom. E-Learning, or online learning, can be effective, but only if the student has the discipline and drive to succeed using the tools and materials they are provided by teachers. Without strong study skills the student will fall behind in the classroom. Online the failure to develop good study skills can be devastating, leading to an inability to achieve the success in life the student could otherwise achieve.

This excellent guide walks students through skills and habits which a student, or a person, employs while studying in order to make the most out of the experience. The kind of skills employed by a person, whether good or bad, determines how successful they will be in the process of learning, and Reidhead shows how to understand study skills, discover what kind of learner you are, develop great study skills, avoid bad study habits, identify the best places to study, and how to keep up with Online Learning during the current ovid-19 pandemic. It also helps parents and students to identify when certain students are studying excessively, harming the effectiveness of their studying.

This is a must book for students who want good grades. Both a guide and a self-help book, it can help any student of any age, middle school through graduate school, succeed in their classes whether they are held in a classroom or online.

Excerpt

Too many students’ grades are falling, especially in a time when regular classrooms cannot fully open. Parents everywhere are at a loss regarding what to do with their responsibilities in the face of the increasing downturn in their children’s grades. It seems as though, with the advent of social media, the attention of a lot of students has been shifted from their books to their smartphones or computers. Apart from social media, blame has also been put on a decline in the interest of students regarding education in general. Students, at the moment, do not have the motivation or zeal, as it seems, to even study.

Good study habits, or skills, are solutions to the problems experienced by students. This has been true for a long time, but the world is changing rapidly, which also means that the tools employed during study have to be changed in order to keep up.

The preceding chapter mentioned that some people are auditory learners. There are also visual learners, kinesthetic learners, and even learners that learn best by reading. The differences stem from the fact that we all experience the world differently. Thus, the different ways we receive, retain, and use information also differs.

Learning about the different types of learning methods is important because it helps educators know how to cater to the needs of every student in their class. It can also eliminate some students lagging behind simply because the mode of teaching in the class is not best for them.

As a student, finding the type of learning style best suited for you is essential because it helps you know what works for you and what doesn’t. The process of self-realization will eliminate many problems and help you focus your attention on the actual skills needed to excel academically. For instance, if you are an auditory learner, you will prioritize listening in class by taking notes. During your study time, it would be wise as an auditory learner, to listen to recordings, if the recordings are available, instead of reading. If auditory tapes are not available you will still have to read.

Author Interview

Who influenced you the most?

I would say my step-father Leland. He was always a hustler and always the one people would call when they needed help. I have never known someone who works harder or serves more than him. He gets a high off working and a high off helping someone in need. These are things he still does as he gets into his late 70s. A very admirable person and someone I am extremely grateful for.

Did you study writing in college?

I didn’t. Writing isn’t something I’ve always wanted to do. It’s just something I came across as an opportunity to help others.

What is your favorite book?

It would be a tie between the Alchemist and Who Moved My Cheese. I try to read both books every year. For some reason, they really speak to me.

What type of book would you like to write next?

I have several I’ve been working on. I still want to continue the Tips to Starting College series, but I’m also working on a children’s book series.

What do you think of eBooks?

I think eBooks are great. Times have been changing and everything is going digital. It’s a way to help reach more people, and really create easy access for readers. I do think it depends on each person’s preferences, but it’s also a great option.
