How to Manage Your Science and Technology Degree is a ground-breaking book, offering a no-nonsense approach to all areas of undergraduate life, including maximizing learning opportunities, handling mathematics and coping with laboratory work. How to succeed in mastering time and finances is covered, as are examination techniques. It also discusses the wider aspects of university life and helps students to grasp each opportunity available to them. The book concludes with a chapter on how to break into your chosen career.

Excellent, clearly rooted in reality, with lots of good advice on how to do well, how to make the most of Higher Education and what can be done if things don't seem to be working out. The sections on work placement and employers and about organisational and social skills have particularly good advice.Jim Breithuapt, Wigan and Leigh College
