Study Advice

Once you have purchased your study material I would suggest you glance through the books. This gives you an overview of the contents. You could then either read one page at a time as you would a reading book. Alternatively you could choose any topic that catches your attention.
For example if you spotted a photograph or drawing that you thought looked interesting. You read more about it. The photograph or drawing when linked to the description text, could help you to remember the topic details.
