Product Description


‘The most life-enhancing publication to come my way in a very long time… a revelation’
Nathalie Wheen on Classic FM

‘A saviour... Read in one day... it works! Ever felt spiralling into a black hole? This book will awaken the passion you once had for your studies - it's there, you just can't feel it... until the first few lines of Chapter 1. Turn a nightmare back to your dream - and realise it’ Student on Amazon

Exams frighten almost everyone.

Fear of failure (and even of success) can make even the most able students struggle with coursework, revision and exams. Most study guides overlook these powerful underlying emotions.

Unique in allaying the anxieties that cause people to procrastinate, go blank, swot pointlessly or underperform, this book can change your attitude and help you break free:

Understand your fears
Stop panicking and start enjoying your work
Develop a balanced mental approach to your exams
In addition, it offers a wealth of grade-boosting tips:
Devise a revision strategy that works
Write powerful essays
Learn how to speed-read
Create effective notes and mind-maps
Remember what you learn
Written simply and humorously, with summaries enabling busy students to read quickly, this is one of the most comprehensive and user-friendly study guides available.
The second edition contains additional material for mature students and a brand new chapter offering real-life student testimonials.

Format: Paperback
A sensible guide to study skills. It would be difficult to argue with any of the advice. For dyslexic students in particular, I would have hoped for a more user-friendly approach, taking advantage of presentation techniques developed by business-oriented self-improvement literature. The book could benefit from some editing towards this end without losing content.
