Review quote

'This is a really useful book for students who aim to study abroad and those students who study in China. I strongly recommend it to students if you would like to fully prepare yourself for your exciting study life abroad.' - Wendy Woo, Chinese student, University of Warwick, UK 'I am a international student in the UK. I bought this book when I was studying first year at the university. I have found a lot of skills to fix my weaknesses for studying on higher education. For example, it was really difficult for reading and taking note at the beginning of the first term. After having read this book, I found how to improve my reading speed and to make a good note. Therefore, I strongly recommend this book for all students who would like to go to university, particularly international students.' - Anon (student) 'A practical no-nonsense guide that gets you to the core of the learning process.' - Business Executive 'Without this book you can get by just fine with your education, but with it you could be exceptional.' - Zac (student)
