Packed with concise information to help students succeed at university. Whether you are an undergraduate student or undertaking a postgraduate programme, you will be able to find a book that will help you develop your study skills.
Of the three books I reviewed [Take Great Notes, Find Your Source and Plan Your Essay], all of them were easy to read and follow, with each book providing a 60 second summary before moving onto more detail in each section and providing reasoning throughout.
This book has been a saviour especially at this time when I needed a host of resources for my dissertation. It opened my eyes to a variety of sources I didn't know exist. I would recommend this book to anyone who needs to find material for university course work.
A great little book for our transition to HE programme. I particularly like the glossary for jargon busting new academic words. Top tips alongside have-a-go activities. I'll be promoting this to new students.
Focused and accessible
Really important for helping our students develop study skills in year 1. This whole series is very user friendly.
