How to Get a First by Thomas Dixon
Book DescriptionIn 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
