A comprehensive ‘how to’ for students transitioning to university. Clear and easy to follow, with wonderful insider tips and reminders about the importance of career planning and a holistic approach to study and preparation for professional life.
Becker has thought of everything! This is a superbly comprehensive book supporting students in every step of their university journey and beyond; from overcoming the anxiety of those first days to ensuring good academic performance, developing that into a rewarding career.
I liked the book but it seems better for first year UG students than for 3rd year as I had planned, so I'm going to recommend it to a colleague for a first year module.
Essential information included within this book for students entering higher education, but is also applicable to those later on in their degree and when going out in to the world of work. Really interesting and logical display of information.
