The book is more helpful for someone who has been out of university or college and wants to prepare themselves to get knews to the pace, that they had when they where doing their very first degree. Simply because you read it and think OMG I made that mistake.....

But for new students it will benefit you as well, studying should be a challenge not hell on earth and I think this book would have helped me from the transition from school to University a lot better. Best of luck you studies.

Nothing really useful 10 Oct 2012

I was really happy when I found this. I was like jumping over and over again, saying: 'at last'. But... Well, it isn't really too good, or good at all.

I recommend this tutorial:
