"Phil Race has a rare talent for expressing profound wisdom and sound advice in words which his readers find easy to understand and in suggestions which they can and do readily follow to good effect. He does this, again, in his new book - which is not so much a book as a rich library of booklets within one volume. These should guide any student reader through all the different and difficult demands which the university experience generates. ... he has linked chains of advice points into splendid plans of attack for use in dealing with each new challenge. I especially liked the plans for essay writing and coping with examinations, because they contained so much that I wish I had been told as a student, expressed in terms I wish I could have passed on to my own students." John Cowan, Emeritus Professor of Learning Development, the Open University "I was very disorganised at university so a lot of what is in How to Study left me wincing. It is spot on. Taking control of learning and taking responsibility can be the hardest parts of successful university study. Phil Race shows what is possible with forward planning. Not everyone needs all the tips but all of us I suspect could have done with some of them. And every little helps." Sally Hunt, General Secretary, AUT "I believe that this is an excellent resource which would, I am sure, be of benefit to all students trying to cope with the demands of higher education." Graham Henderson, Vice Chancellor, University of Teesside This book is much more than a manual. It is a self-help guide to students of all ages and can be used either by dipping in and out, or reading it, as I did, systematically from cover to cover. I wish I had had a book like this when I was a student and would certainly recommend it to anyone." Susan Bassnett, pro-Vice Chancellor, University of Warwick "A very readable and enjoyable study guide" Karen Monaghan, BSc (Hons) Psychology - 3rd Year, Glasgow Caledonian University & BPS/SMG Member's Liaison Officer 2002/3 - 2003/4 Featured in The Bookseller's 'Back to School' issue, Friday June 13 2003
