'I have to say I really did love this book! Feeling very motivated and inspired after reading it (a boost most students need at some point during their studies!).' - Iram Satti, English Language & Literature in Education student
'You can tell the author has been a student relatively recently which is brilliant for connecting with the reader. The fact that the advice in the book comes from this different angle is a real plus.' - Seb Knight, Politics & Economics student
'As someone who has perhaps researched educational psychology more than the average person, I still learnt a significant amount from reading it. How to Get a First is a clear and well-organized guide to help you excel in your degree, providing you with the up-to-date advice of its recently graduated author.' - The Boar (Univesity of Warwick's Student Newspaper)
How To Get a First combines personal experience, scientific research and motivational anecdotes from other students to create a comprehensive guide to the basic elements of academic success

Michael uses a holistic approach and although some reviews have considered this to be mere common sense, the majority do unfortunately lack this and that is what makes so many guides seem so regimented and impersonal. Something as simple as a guide to planning out times for study is essential and although simple, it is very effective, as planning is typically the first hurdle that many students do not manage to do.
This book is an all round helpful guide, it won't tell you to what time to put your kids to bed in order to get enough study time and it won't tell you what questions will be in your exams or what to write in assignments like some readers appear to have expected it to. This book does however give you an academic insight into how Tefula attained his own grades and this it what makes his information key, if he achieved it, then with the same level of hard work and dedication so can any reader.
Overall Michaels positive attitude, hardworking ethos and realistic advice and approaches to study, make this book helpful, inspiring, personal and realistic.
