  • When you're studying and revising for exams, using some good learning resources is important

  • these are the dictionaries, course books and websites you'll need to find out information

  • about your subjects. But which ones should you choose? Here are some things to think

  • about when you are buying some new English learning material in a shop or online.

  • What skills do you want to practise? If you want to practise your communicative skills,

  • for example, make sure you don't buy a book which concentrates on reading and writing.

  • If the course books you are considering are graded, make sure you have assessed your ability

  • accurately.

  • Can you borrow DVDs and books from anywhere? Can you share a login to access a useful paid-for

  • website? Sharing cuts costs!

  • And, does the course you intend to study have lots of extras which you pay for but aren't

  • going to use?

  • What resources does this student use?

  • "I never use my coursebook - I always ask my teacher. This irritates her a bit, but

  • what else is she there for?" Well, your teacher is probably the best resource you have. So make

  • the most of him or her.

  • A final tip is to use another book in addition to the one the teacher recommends. This will

  • give you a feeling that you have control over your learning.

  • Good luck with your studies. Getting the right resources will make studying and revising

  • a whole lot easier.
