Study Skills for Policing Students by Richard Malthouse, Jodi Roffey-Barentsen


Study Skills for Policing Students by Richard Malthouse, Jodi Roffey-Barentsen

This text provides an accessible and up to date guide to study skills for all those undertaking degrees and foundation degrees in policing. It will also be relevant to degree courses in criminology and criminal justice. Efficient study skills pave the way to successful learning. This book helps policing students with all aspects of their studies including identifying how they learn best, effective note-taking, how to be critical and analytical in their reading, writing and thinking, how to carry out research and writing a final dissertation.


I am recommending this book to our student officers - it covers everything we need and more, and says it in a clear style ... I am going to suggest that this text be issued to each officer on the programme. Programme Leader, Liverpool John Moores University.
