Helpful

I found this very helpful with different advise to aid studying. I found I was trying to multi task while listening, so for me I would have to just sit quite. But as it goes through people with dyslexia learn differently. Im glad I listened to this and I think I would get the book to back it up and go through at the same time.

Excellent study aid

The book is well structured and well read. It really takes into account different learning styles and the fact that dyslexia will impact different people in different ways. It gives some very practical advice in a non judgemental way.

helpful and very useful. not just for dyslexics.

The exercise was enlightening and useful. I ended making notes (unintentional) because the information was so good. I am also going to share this with my daughter as she is hoping to start her GCSE course next week.

good resource

I got this for my two kids who are a little young (6 and 8) for the exam resource section but I was still glad things to listen to it as some thing can be adapted for their homework etc.
As an adult who is dyslexic, I found that a lot of the tips and advice were things that I had used during my education but I was delighted to be reminded of them and to help my kids implement them in their work. A lot of things that helped me in my studies I had forgotten (its been a while ha!) but it shows how good a resource this bool is (as I know the tips work!)
Somethings I already knew but was delighted to learn the background or categories these things fell into.
the biggest thing I will take from this is the adaptation as my kids grown and the subject they are studying may need a different approach and I shouldn't get stuck in a rut of the 'correct way to study'. There is a good section Ill let me kids listen to for them to figure out how they learn best and let them choose their own homework/study methods
Glad I listened and was a quick book which is needed to hold the attention of dyslexic people listening!

Not a cure, a plan.

As an educator and mother, I thoroughly condone putting this book to practice. Unlike most books on disabilities, this author doesn’t claim to cure. Instead there is a test that helps determine what kind of learner you are and then he has a corresponding chapter to help you learn with the abilities you have. I think this is a great book for educators and parents of dyslexic children. He even write about Calcula the mathematical equivalent of dyslexia. I don’t think this author left anything out. This was a really informative book!r

A worthwhile read for a struggling adult needing somewhere to start

This is a great book to at least get the layout of the land in terms of what you will need to do to study better - whether you’ve been diagnosed or just suspect dyslexia. While many of the concepts are things you may have heard before as just general good study habits, this book outlines the techniques that are especially helpful for dyslexics. It was at least comforting to know that these are the techniques used by many in the dyslexic community. Having no knowledge of how to cope with it before, I appreciated the in depth explanations of how to utilize and implement the study tips, even if I already heard of them before. I highly recommend this book, especially for the time-length it is, for under two hours of your time, it is time well spent either learning some new study techniques or at least reinforcing ones you already use but didn’t realize are recommended for dyslexia.

Know yourself, chose your learning style

The focus of this book is to help with learning for people with Dyslexia; however, it also a very good study guide in general. It covers different study patterns one can follow/prefer and recommends how to best study with your preferred style.

Narrator has a very steady voice and easy to follow.
