Table of contents

Preface Stressed out by induction Intimidated by monster reading lists Reading takes forever On a different planet from your teachers Knee-deep in notes Suffering from writer's block Mystified by essay topics Demoralized by 'negative feedback' Let down by poor spelling Stumped for a dissertation subject Bored with reviewing the literature Feeling your opinion is worthless Spooked by the plagiarism police Getting good marks for coursework, poor marks in exams Terrified by the prospect of exams In a project group sabotaged by a 'free-rider' Hopeless at time management Tongue-tied in seminars Unsure about the quality of counselling Feeling like dropping out Notes and references
