'Learners do not always realise that their secret to study success lies with well-developed learning skills and confidence in their application. For business and management students on their learner journey, this book provides an invaluable source of ideas and support.'
'Learning how to learn effectively is essential for success at University yet rarely do academic staff have the time, or sometimes the detailed knowledge, to help students develop the skills they need.
'I am delighted that we now have an up-to-date and relevant study skills book to recommend to Business and Management students starting on their HE journey. For far too long we have had to rely on material that is either not particularly relevant, or is written in styles that are either patronising or cloaked in language that is pretty incomprehensible to first-year undergraduates. I really like the “real life experience” inclusions and feel many students will find them both valuable and reassuring. I will have no hesitation in recommending this to RDBS Business and Management students'
'This book provides practical advice and a toolbox for anyone studying business and related subjects at university. Based on experience as both students and lecturers, it is realistic about how to avoid pitfalls, make more of your time and move towards a job that you really want.'
Study Skills for Business and Management is a guide packed with tips and tools to help any business student get the most out of their degree. For first years it is a great introduction to university work and the different skills that are needed. The book also has a lot to offer second and final year students as you can dip in and out of sections to brush up on certain skills and identify common mistakes that you may be making...
This is a very useful and very accessible book for any student of business and management, and particularly for international students.
A well written and structured book which covers the key elements of learning. This book is appropriate for anyone who has a keen interest in studying in higher education. It highlights the relevant study skills necessary to be successful. It Is a must read for anyone who is in education.
I will be recommending this text to the business students to aid with all aspects of their degree
This book is good, however, to general for the MBA students to gain enough value from.
An excellent book that will be essential reading for our first year "Higher Education Skills" module. It is will written and easily accessible for first year students.
This is a good book for first year and second year undergraduates, who often enter university lacking fundamental study skills. As of next year, I will be recommending it to my second year students. The chapters on group work and presentation are highly relevant, as much assessment these days is group work based. The book is slightly let down by a lack of focus on numeracy, which is an essential business skill. There could also be more on memorisation and handwriting of notes - the old fashioned skills that prove very useful in examinations.
An excellent supplemental resource for undergraduate students in these subject areas on a range of academic skills areas. I especially liked the group work, time management and presentation skills sections.
Will be recommending this again this year to second year undergraduate students of business and management.
Excellent supportive text book for students new to academic study.
The book does not exactly matched our syllabus but is highly recommended for all students especially freshmen.
Should actually serve as a good context text for all undergraduates
This book has been well recieved by students about to embark on a univisity course in business and management.
I would recommend this textbook to our students within the business school - particularly those on generalist business courses. I felt that the sections on group work and business communications (including tips on effective and appropriate use of social media) were really useful, and will refer to these in workshops/sessions. I think some of our students may struggle with chapters on essay writing and exams, as by the time they use our service (academic support) they are often looking for quick guidance rather than a chapter of text to read.
Has been recommended to our undergraduate students
one author was a recent student, so a contemporary take on this essential subject.
