PRLog - July 7, 2011 - Dr. Alison Crowe, member of the Biology Department at the University of Washington, says: "As a professor I spend a lot of time giving my students advice on how to study, how to prepare for an upcoming interview or how to get the most out of class. Now I can share this easy to read guide with my students. It is filled with practical ideas on everything from how to establish a productive study environment to how to get the most out of lectures. Many students don't realize how important it is to prepare prior to lecture and to look over notes immediately after lecture in order to maximize their learning. I would definitely recommend this book to any undergraduate considering professional school."
