This is kind of embarrassing, but I'm a really crappy studier -- I don't concentrate well, I have terrible retention, blah, blah, blah. I'm thinking I should really rectify this before I start school in August, and I was wondering if anyone can recommend books on study skills, or methods that have been successful, or anything like that? I'd like to start now so I can practice over the summer, and I searched all the forums and keep coming up with things like, "read everything five times". "Highlight all the important parts". I'm sure those techniques worked wonderfully for the people recommending them, but they don't for me. Does anyone have any ideas or recommendations? I'm particularly interested in books that teach study skills, but any advice is welcome.
