This is not just another 'how to study' book. This is about how to make the most of your studies and be ready in the workplace: how to make the investment pay off.'Dr Francis Pakes, Portsmouth University
The book contains no shortage of good advice on studying at university and adopts a practical approach to graduate skills and employment preparedness. A sound investment for new students.-Dr Pamela Davies, Northumbria University
Great introductory text for students - particularly those just starting out. Clear, practical advice that has already helped in my teaching as well as guiding students through their work.
This has been useful when identifying ways of keeping students engaged etc. Also has helped with revision and assignment planning which is something my students often struggle with at times.
Is a good source for undergraduate students in continuous assessment and examination preparations.
A useful resource for students who request a hard copy text covering some of the content that we provide in our unit.
good basic book for forst year students in all disciplines
This is a good book for first year undergraduate criminology students. It covers the structire of a degree programme and reminds lecturers never to assume what students know about Criminology programmes and assessments. On that basis, this is a useful book for planning induction week and also for thinking through a whole range of studying skills to base lectures upon.
A very good second edition of this easy-to-read study skills book. A great addition to any higher education students' collection of texts which provides practical, relevant advice. The addition of activities, key tips, a glossary, useful websites, and recommendations for further reading, all contribute to the importance of developing students' employability skills.
A terrific guide for any student studying criminology or any social science subject related to the criminal justice system. Very easy to use and good advice given to the students. A great learning aid for undergraduates.
This second edition builds on an already established excellent first edition. An essential for any student entering higher education and the fact it is tailored to criminology is excellent. My year 1 and 2 students have found this extremely useful this year and it is an essential read on the Study Skills module
A very useful, hands-on guide to studying criminology that will help undergraduate students to make the most of their degree.
This is a fantastic resources to be used by students who are new to a Criminology degree. It will be highly recommended to students during induction onto my criminology degree.
A well written resource for students wanting assistance to improve in their studies.
A highly recommended text for all undergraduate criminology students
Excellent resource I will be recommending this text at open days, applicant days and at induction
This is a must have for students's, who are serious about enhancing their academic abailities, and other key transferable skills in preparation for career development pathways and career rediness.
This book is an essential part of my teaching during the Academic and Professional Development module. It gives clear and easy to understand information to both tutors and students regarding important study skills techniques. I will be recommending this text to students and hoping my college's LRC will invest in several copies.
Excellent. Good relevant content. Easy to use. User-friendly.
