5.0 out of 5 stars More than inspirational platitudes! 17 Jun 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is excellent value with well thought out practical measures for a student to, at least think about, and more likely adopt. The book doesn't patronise the student and caters for a wide array of types of study - all students are individuals, after all. The way it's cconstructed and presented even offers students a different way of thinking about their studies so they can change their patterns for better learning.

Phil Race sets out with an immediate plan of introspection from which a student will build. What I like most about this method is that it starts from a point of accepting who you are and allows YOU to see for yourself what avenues you can take to inprove your study that are likely to be most acceptable to you. I think it's a "should read" for ANY student embarking on a period of serious study.

Although it's geared to degree study, I believe ther's much in here for the 'A' level student and 'PhD' student alike.

5.0 out of 5 stars University Success 19 Aug 2013
By Boo
This book is very good at showing students how life, both social and acedemic, can be joined together and be mutually beneficial to each other. The well layed out style of the book itself makes it easy to read whilst also being helpful for parts to skip (for example I dont do field work which there is a headed paragraph on, therefore I can skip it and know I have not missed any vital information that is relevant for me). I would recommend this book, after reading a few i think this one is the clearest and has the most information, espeically as it is one of the cheaper books...
