When deciding to buy a book, determine immediately what kind of book you want to buy before you leave your house. Identifying the book you need to buy saves you time in searching.

Then, you do not know which book to buy, which leads to the purchase of “beautiful but not good” books, not to mention buying without never touched.
Classification of book genres
To choose a good book, you need basic skills in distinguishing different types of books. Books can be divided into technical books, entertainment books, guidebooks, and inspirational books. You need to read professional books when you want to have more specialized knowledge, or read at the request of teachers, read to make presentations, essays.
Entertainment books are novels, classics, horror stories … pure to relax. Instructional books such as “How to get rich quickly”, etc. Depending on your question, these books will give you the correct answer. Inspirational books are “How to Win Friends and Influence People”, “Chicken soup for the soul”, etc. help you to appreciate life and live better every day.
Determine when to buy books
At different times, the need to access knowledge is different. So you need to determine at which point you need to buy. For example: When you are preparing to take the exam, you should buy specialized books to help master the knowledge. Or when you finish the exam, the basic knowledge has been captured, then the advanced book is necessary, helping you to have a broader knowledge base. Of course, if you can read it before the test, the better.
Read the summary of the book
