It contains essentially all of the information that a student needs for success. It covers everything from attending lectures and taking effective notes to preparing for and writing tests and exams.

It gives advice on how to avoid problems and when they are unavoidable, how to deal with them effectively.

In addition to the University calendar and required textbooks, this is the only complete guide a student will need to reach his or her full potential and to graduate with a degree of which they can be proud.

Research assessment exercises, teaching quality assessment, line management, staff appraisal, student course evaluation, modularization, student fees - these are all names of innovations (and problems) - in modern British universities.
