Description

BA: An Insider's Guide is a practical, honest introduction to getting a great arts degree at university. Author Rebecca Jury has just emerged from the maelstrom of university study and offers her personal take on how to ace your BA. She introduces readers to everything from choosing courses (like putting together personalised gourmet sandwich), setting up a study space and doing part-time work, to turning up at lectures and tutorials and actually reading your 'readings'. In particular, she focuses on planning, work-life balance, study habits, succeeding at essays and exams, and sorting out a life after your degree. She offers 10 steps on how to make university a more rewarding and enjoyable experience. If you're not afraid to be a nerd, polish up your essays until they shine and master exam-taking techniques, Rebecca Jury suggests, you'll emerge from the university experience a better thinker, a more employable worker and a wiser person.BA: An Insider's Guide is an essential reader for all those considering study or about to embark on their arts degree. Among all the guides to essay writing and research for undergraduates, this book distinguishes itself by its coverage of the full range of student life, by its rootedness in recent experience at a New Zealand university and by its clear, engaging, personal style.
