Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I am a careers advisor at a school and purchased this on an Amazon recommendation after ordering a related text. I have to say I'm very disappointed with it as it doesn't tell me anything I don't know. Much of it seems a bit trite and wouldn't be much use to those students who are aiming high for the top universities. It would be useful to a student and their parents if little support and guidance is available at their school/college - it will get you on the right track to producing a basic and competent personal statement; to be fair, I suspect this is its target market. If you are trying to get into the most competitive institutions and courses, you are going to have to write with a lot more flair and focus and there are other resources that will be much more useful to you.

Format: Paperback
I had no idea how to even begin to write my personal statement, so I made the choice to buy this book and I couldn't have been more pleased with it. The activities it gets you to do are simple yet so eye-opening. You find yourself referring to the format plan and the questions for inspiration on what to write. It tells you what each paragraph should include. It even tells you the most important things - what NOT to write! I gave my first draft in, and my tutor came back to me to say that it was superb and that nothing needed altering. I attribute a large part of that success to the help and ideas this book provided me with.

Even if you think you will be fine with your personal statement, give this a go. It will improve it, for sure.

I am about to become a 'mature' student on a foundation degree course. I found this book well written, very helpful and easy to read. I would recommend this book to anyone needing some knowledge of the UCAS system.
