Reviews for the 1st edition: 'I was a last minute crammer and it really helped me with how to maintain a strong attitude in my preparation, managing your demons and performing well on the day. The tips were excellent guides. What I particularly found useful was the page cross referencing system through out the chapters, so rather than reading the book cover to cover you would just access the bits you needed when you needed them. Quick, fast and to the point. It also had very useful guides on what to expect when stressed and how to cope with that. The section on the '5 point plan for peak performance' was my starting point and a life-saver, it got me through my exams. The book delivers what it says on the tin.' - Amazon review 'In no way difficult, this book is useful, relevant and concise. A must for any college or university student, plus an absolute bargain price' - Amazon review
