How to Get a First : The Essential Guide to Academic Success Paperback / softback
by Thomas Dixon
In this informative guide, Thomas Dixon argues that you do not have to be a genius to get a first at university.
He sets out to de-mystify first-class degrees in the arts, humanities and social sciences, clearly articulating the difference between the excellent and the merely competent in undergraduate work. This concise, no-nonsense guidebook will give prospective and current students advice on teaching and learning styles that prevail in university and on how to manage their two most important resources - their time and their lecturers.
In an accessible and entertaining style, the author looks at subjects such as:making the transition from school to universitydeveloping transferable skillsmaking use of lectures and seminarsusing libraries and the Internetnote-taking, essays, seminars and presentationscommon mistakes to avoidwriting with clarity and stylerevision and examinations. Illustrated with many examples from a range of academic disciplines, How to Get a First is an all-purpose guide to success in academic life.
