For many students in higher education academic study can be daunting, stressful or frustrating. Consciously or unconsciously, these students use the same studying and learning techniques that they acquired at school, but fail to achieve their potential. Here's their problem: those techniques are not fit for "academic" purpose. However, students never learn this because they receive feedback on their output (e.g. assignments, exams, etc.) rather than on their input (i.e. how they study).Peter Lia has dedicated his career in higher education to empowering students to take more thoughtful and strategic approaches to academic studying and learning. In this refreshing book, he breaks with tradition and encourages students to approach their assignments with creative methods. Out go the endless pages of notes, and in come charts, tables, drawings and templates that encourage students to think logically and critically about their academic work. The result is the demystification of studying and learning in higher education and a more inclusive and fulfilling experience for students. – Iria Giuffrida, William & Mary Law School, USA.
This book simplifies the process of learning and working and will make learning accessible and enjoyable. Peter Lia is a rare master of his craft and every education institution should take note of his creative wisdom. – Ranjita Dhital, University of Reading, UK.
This book blends supportive and inspirational material to provide students with a structured, practical and creative approach to academic assessments.  It is a well structured, step-by-step guide and I would highly recommend it. – Benita Cox, Imperial College London, UK.
Peter Lia's Simplify your study is a new resource that will be perfect for my students, as our module is all about Essential Study Skills. The book is clear and explains concepts well in a manner that students will easily understand. – Freda Cook, University of Sunderland, UK.
