Although, I am still reading the book. I started Part 2, Chapter 5 (The Essential Skills) this morning and precisely on "Getting Round Obstacles". So far, the chapters on reading, taking notes and Essay writing techniques are helpful in preparing me for my intending course.
Regardless of whatever, a serious student/learner cannot do away with the book, it is a must read. It is a book I intends to personally buy, keep and retain as companion to see me through my entire study.
