Studying is always stressful and filled with pressure – it’s even more daunting when you’re a mature student, who has been out of school for 10, 20 or even 30 years… Like Sue Wickliffe of Omaha, Nebraska. In today’s post, I have a few recommendations for someone who’s going back to school after a long absence…
Hi, Dr. Dussault.
I found your website by accident. I belong to IAAP (International Association of Administrative Professionals) and I have been an admin/executive assistant for 35+ years.
Here I am… I’m going to be 60 in April and the IAAP Chapter that I belong to here in Omaha, Nebraska talked me into becoming certified. I’m currently thinking … “What did I get myself into.” There are four large books I will be studying:
1) Office Systems and Technology
2) Office Administration
4) Advanced Management
I have an electronic version of these books (which is better than the books themselves). The actual books are too wordy. Loses the reader. On the electronic version there was a link to “Ask Jeeves” and I typed in How to study. Voila!!! There was your website. I purchased your book “Get The Best Grades With The Least Amount Of Effort” as well as your Speed Reading Video Program.
Right now I’m feeling overwhelmed and haven’t studied since high school. I’m hoping your materials will help me. I plan to apply them. The big 6-hour test will take place this November and the other two hour test (for the last book) will take place in May 2011.
The Good Lord gave me a brain and people like you to bring it to fruition.
I’ll keep you posted on my progress.
ONWARD AND UPWARD!!!
