Study Skills Handbook Newsletter for August

How can parents help during stressful assessment times?

Provided by Dr Prue Salter from  Enhanced Learning Educational Services .

The second semester often heralds blocks of examinations or assessments for students. Some students cope well with the pressure and stress while others find it overwhelming. Of course, the more prepared students are, the less stress they are likely to experience. Encourage your daughter to start her preparation for examinations and assessments early, in particular her study notes. If your daughter has examination blocks this semester, these tips will help you provide the support she needs.

Please refer to the  Study Skills Handbook –  August Newsletter    for more information.

You and your daughter can learn more about how to study effectively at www.studyskillshandbook.com.au by logging in with the details below and working through some of the units.
