The transition between school and university is not an easy one. There are unfamiliar subjects to be studied and even familiar subjects are approached in new ways. The pace of learning is much faster, the volume of written work increases and all the deadlines seem to come at once. And then there are the exams.
This series of books aims to bridge the gap by
· Introducing subjects as they are taught at university
· Providing some time management strategies
· Suggesting how to get the most out of lectures and tutorials
· Showing how to write an essay to university standards
· Taking some of the agony out of exams
