How to Get a First by Thomas Dixon
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Do you have to be a genius to get a first at university? In How to Get a First Thomas Dixon argues that you do not, and sets out to demystify 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, managing your time and managing your 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.
