Study Smart Series

This STUDY SMART reference guide series, designed for students from junior high school through lifelong learning programs, teaches skills for research and note-taking, presents strategies for test-taking and studying, provides exercises to improve spelling, grammar, and vocabulary, and reveals secrets for putting these skills together in great essays.

“Many of the suggestions . . . should be learned at a young age and students would do well to peruse these books. . . . The discussion of resources, a brief overview of a library’s organization, interviewing, use of the telephone-all these and more might suggest ways for students to go about research for their assignments.”

Judi Kesselman-Turkel and Franklynn Peterson write and publish the newsletter CPA Computer Report. They have written hundreds of articles and more than twenty books including The Author’s Handbook, Good Writing, and The Magazine Writer’s Handbook. They live in Madison, Wisconsin.
