When I wrote the first edition of this book in 1984, the field of Study Skills and Study Aids was a rapidly expanding one. It is now colossal: a comprehensive bibliography would be the size of this new edition and more. Furthermore, as those who have read my 'Study Aid Tirade' earlier (pp. 92-95) will be aware, I have no desire to send readers in the direction of the many tawdry and frankly damaging publications that abound. Instead I offer a selective bibliography of books I admire, have found helpful and know that students have benefited from.
