5.0 out of 5 stars A must for any mature student! 18 Aug 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
A good insight to how Uni or higher education might affect you and what is expected. Good explanations of terminology and having read this book I now feel prepared to start my degree. Would really recommend this book to parents returning to higher education whilst raising a family.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very useful advice! 25 Jun 2014
By Mutley
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is far the best study skills book I ever bought (and I bought a few useless ones before). It goes straight to the point in a way that filled me up with confidence to get started with preparing for my MSc. the author writes like someone who has been through education as a mature student with other responsibilities to juggle. Just like me, I am very happy with the advice contained in the book and would recommend to any mature student who has been out of education for a long time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book 16 Feb 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I am re-starting my degree through the O.U later this year and this book is a great starting point for anyone getting back into study. Chapters on note taking/reading effectively, how to take notes in seminars/lectures. Also chapters on time management, referencing and essay writing. This will definitely be very useful for any mature student.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good. 13 Nov 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
After the disappointment of the first Lucinda Becker book I reviewed, I am glad to say this one is much better. There is a lot more relevant and constructive content in it. I am happy to give this book the full five stars.
