How to Improve Study Habits by Christine Reidhead is a self-help guide for teen learners and up on how to get the most out of the task many like the least, and to do so in a way that is highly effective. Broken down into nine distinct chapters, Reidhead streamlines what study skills actually are and the different types of learners, developing and improving study skills, bad habits, the best places to study, signs you are studying excessively and its impact. Reidhead wraps the book up with an incredibly timely chapter that will no doubt be embraced by parents and students who are having to adapt to the new normal: study, home school, and independent learning during COVID-19. All of these make up the front portion of the book, with the latter half of nearly 150 pages comprising of a student planner and multiple helpful worksheets.
As a parent to a teenage daughter who does require an extra bit of encouragement to get her studying done before the 11th hour, Christine Reidhead and How to Improve Study Habits swooped right in at the moment we needed the most help. The tips and tricks are really clear and concise, and simple enough to implement almost immediately. I felt that most of these things I already knew, however, my daughter did not, and since she's the one who needs to study, this book was a welcome guide in its primary demographic. Proof that it was read by a seventeen-year-old came in the form of her pointing out the problems that can arise from overstudying and stating with absolute authority that she was risking death by doing more than she thought safe or necessary—after about 15 minutes. All joking aside, this is a genuinely helpful resource and I especially think the back matter will prove most effective for its readers.
