Math Study Skills Workbook by Paul D. Nolting is a great book for those seeking to improve their math grades. It’s a relatively short (136 pages) guide on how to improve your study habits, reduce math and test anxiety and much more. And, to be honest, it’s one of the best no-nonsense study skill guides I’ve ever read.
What You Need to Known to Study MathThere are 7 chapters, which includes:
- How to Discover Your Math Learning Strengths and Challenges
- How to Reduce Math Test Anxiety
- How to Improve Your Listening and Note-Taking Skills
- How to Improve Your Reading, Homework and Study Techniques
- How to Remember What You Learned

Paul Nolting is a national expert in assessing math learning problems – from study skills to learning disabilities – and developing effective learning strategies and testing accommodations. His expertise is clearly visible throughout the book, as he offers dozens of simple, yet highly useful tips on improving your study strategies and habits. In many ways, the book is similar to the “For Dummies” books, as there are many examples, tips, exercises and even a rubric called “Dan’s Take” in which a real student offers his views on the subject. So a long story short — it’s a great guide for students, which you should definitely try out.
