KIRKUS REVIEW

One of the few really worthwhile ""how-to"" books for students facing four years of college, this serious guide gratefully bypasses a cheering squad approach to motivation. Professor Erlich assumes the student's desire to achieve and he proceeds from there beginning with a flexible outline for studying and separate pertinent guides to the improvement of that trio of vital tools essential to real learning-reading, listening and writing. Here are comprehension and speed tests, note-taking techniques and an outline to good written communication. The rest of the book in devoted to intelligent, specific approaches to the learning of a foreign language, mathematics, science and the social sciences. How to get the most out of the science lab and the college library are also included. Final chapters deal with writing a term paper and organizing a written exam. Excerpts from text-books in each subject, are scattered throughout providing the novice with basic practice material. The underlying promise that study in an art not a trick and that the way to efficient mastery requires discipline not short cuts, form the foundation of a sound book.
