The object of study skills is to take less time studying, not more, but to become more efficient—getting more out of time spent. Techniques in this book are designed to help with that process.

Those who are not developed writers tend to think that they need inspiration in order to write, but there are far too many times when a person can’t sit around waiting for inspiration, but must write something soon if not immediately. Techniques in this book have been developed to help with the difficult getting started part of writing.
