Description - Getting Straight 'A's by Richard Palmer

The onslaught of media reports detailing the difficulty that even top students now have when trying to get into the university of their choice underlines the highly competitive nature of the education system at present. To secure a place on their chosen course, students need to attain top grades. Packed full of invaluable and practical advice, tips, quizzes, and self-assessment exercises, this guide is one of the first written with the keenest and most ambitious students in mind - a group growing in number. Richard Palmer helps students to: - assess their own strengths and weaknesses - make the best use of resources available to them - effectively manage their time and prioritise their workload - develop essay-writing and note-taking skills - excel in exams and coursework. Considered a natural companion to the author's highly successful "Brain Train", this book aims to maximize academic potential both in coursework and exams amongst 15-18 year olds, whether studying linear or modular courses.
