In this section, we've looked at a number of issues concerning:

  • the nature of study
  • the sort of mental activity that goes into it.

We have also looked at the need to have a proper 'strategy' for study which includes:

  • an analysis of when you're going to study
  • creation of a study plan
  • an ability to access the right tools and equipment.

Now we'll go on to consider a more particular study skill - finding, reading and retaining information.
