How to Succeed in Your Social Science Degree
"As a guide to living and studying at university, this book goes beyond describing basic study skills and instead invites the reader to use ideas from sociology to make sense of the role of being a student, the university as an institution and the professional relationships between students and lecturers. It is written in a style that feels like having a supportive and experienced tutor, who has bags of common sense and has seen hundreds of students through university, talking you through the issues while offering practical advice and wise commentary to help you come to terms with the demands of being a student" - Peter Lunt, Brunel University
