Review

Reviews for the 1st edition:

'I was a last minute crammer and it really helped me with how to maintain a strong attitude in my preparation, managing your demons and performing well on the day. The tips were excellent guides. What I particularly found useful was the page cross referencing system through out the chapters, so rather than reading the book cover to cover you would just access the bits you needed when you needed them. Quick, fast and to the point. It also had very useful guides on what to expect when stressed and how to cope with that. The section on the '5 point plan for peak performance' was my starting point and a life-saver, it got me through my exams. The book delivers what it says on the tin.' - Amazon review

'In no way difficult, this book is useful, relevant and concise. A must for any college or university student, plus an absolute bargain price' - Amazon review

I really like this book, it aids in a lot of self reflection and criticism I wouldn't have otherwise done. I'm only half way through and I've already realised where I've gone wrong in the past, what to do different ect. I really would recommend this to students. I honestly didn't think it would help as much as it would - you have to have the right attitude and be in the right frame of mind to get the most out of it, but Its worth it.

For those definitely buying it - try a chapter a day if you can, or half a chapter. Write your own notes down, really invest in it, use it as a tool to improve your learning and exam technique.
