From the Publisher
Attending university for the first time is usually a time of great excitement. However, there are a lot of people who don't get the most out of their time at university and these people leave university with a sense of regret about the opportunities that they have missed. It is the hope of the author that this book can play a part in helping to ensure that as many people as possible don't look back at their years as a student with this sense of regret. Here are two of the tips: "Your priority for the first few weeks at university should be to focus on social activities. You need to forge the friendships which will underpin your life for the next few years." And: "When revising first consider the structure of the course, and then consider how this is likely to be reflected in the exam; structure your revision accordingly."
