I recommend "College Study: The Essential Ingredients" published by Prentice 
It provides a self-directed approach to college study, and includes learning 
behaviors, attitudes, and styles. Exercises are meaningful and give students 
the opportunity to reflect on what they are learning and how it applies to 
their own success. It  also includes many collaborative learning activities.

Besides use in the classroom with a credit-bearing course, chapters can be 
used separately for workshops. Our tutors use it as part of their training 
course, with the emphasis on integrating strategies (how to learn) with
