Abstract:

Aimed at beginning to intermediate undergraduates and above, this textbook

in learning, develop individual learning plans and approaches, and select 
appropriate learning strategies. Each chapter contains an overview and 
review section, with learning activities that students can carry out 
either individually or in classrooms.
