How to Get a First: The Essential Guide to Academic Success

by

How to Get a First: The Essential Guide to Academic Success Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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 university
  • developing transferable skills
  • making use of lectures and seminars
  • using libraries and the Internet
  • note-taking, essays, seminars and presentations
  • common mistakes to avoid
  • writing with clarity and style
  • revision 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. Visit the companion website www.getafirst.com
