Essential Study Skills by Ray LeCara Jr is an insightful, stimulating, comprehensive, and well-researched guide for becoming a successful life-long learner. I particularly enjoyed it because I'll be starting a new course soon, and I learned valuable techniques to succeed, like notetaking and revising each day's lesson. Understanding your learning style and how to adapt or even adopt new learning styles best suited for each subject was an interesting takeaway. LeCara has an in-depth understanding of how best to learn and takes a holistic and human approach to education; that we are people first. Once we care for our human needs in a balanced way, we can be productive and at our best in other endeavors like academics, sports, and work. Essential Study Skills will help all students young and old be good life-long learners able to set realistic schedules that help them to achieve their goals.
