I'm a first year geography student, this book was on my reading list but it wasn't a must buy product. However I am so glad I bought this, I found it very useful, it has basic techniques and tips for geography students (They may seem basic but they do help) and I have used the book to help me with my revision and essays.
This book is essential for anyone who is doing geography, It is especially useful for improving essay skills, but also covers things like presentation skills and debating skills. It has a lot of little tasks to help you improve too, so it's not just mindless reading.
gives very useful tips and hints on a variety of aspects in geography such as oral presentations, lab work, how and when to revise. also gives some excercises to put into practice the skills you have just learnt.
