    Abstract

    Effective study skills are a foundation for learning success. In this chapter we set out some vital elements of successful study. Key concerns in plannng your study include working to achieve a work'life balance, learning to budget your time and developing skills in time management. Many of the ideas outlined in this chapter, particularly those to do with effective time management, will serve you well in study and in the workplace. Probably the most important key to successful study at university is careful time and task management. Another key is finding somewhere suitable to study.
