Extremely useful if you are on a Open University course,other undergraduate course at university or just doing A-levels. One of the great things about the book is it easy readability, reassuring the reader that returning to study or studying for the first time is a skill that at first seems daunting but can be easily learn't through practice and not to get angry or disheartened if your work is criticised this is part of the learning process. Excellent for the Social Sciences.
That was a bit rambling. Anyway, my point is that this book has already changed the way I approach work. It's given me control of my grades, which I never truly felt that I had. Grades just happened to me, like a happy accident. Now, I can strive to meet my goals and finally feel like I'm working for something.
