Check Out This Great Learning Resource!

The Study Guides and Strategies website made its first appearance in 1996 and "has been researched, authored, maintained and supported by Joe Landsberger as an international, learner-centric, educational public service" since then.

Here you will find an amazing amount of information contained in 17 broad categories such as Preparing, Learning, Studying, Learning With Others, Online Learning/Communicating,
Classroom Participation, Project Management, Research, Preparing For Tests, Taking Tests, and more!

The Guides have been translated into, and are currently available, in 31 different languages and Mr. Landsberger invites readers to help translate a Guide if they are so inclined.

(The site is also continuously revised and updated.)

Some sections are interactive and the ones I've looked at are concise and to the point. While the Guides seem to be targeted at college students I think anyone (high school students, home-schoolers, life-long learners) seeking to improve study skills would find this site extremely helpful.

(Miss Bun is exceedingly upset that nothing like this was available to her when she went to college! On the other hand, she is quite happy knowing that today's students have so many useful resources at their disposal!)

Be sure to click on the "Visitor Center" button on the top right of the home page where you can sign up for the newsletter, check out visitor stats, find a list of updates, additions, & revisions, as well as a history of the site.
