Review: This book covers everything you need to know about going onto further education - from choosing your degree subject and which Uni to study at, to how to successfully and efficiently study, to making career choices and writing your CVs. The majority of the book covers, as you would expect, how to plan and study effectively. I particularly like the action plans and case studies. Studying at uni is so different to learning at school, you have to take responsibility for it, and the book gives plenty of guidance at achieving this. If you are planning on going to college or uni, or you have a child planning to do so in the near future, this book should be the first stop on the journey.
