Too often students, particularly dyslexic/dyspraxic ones, are ill-prepared for the rigour of academic study. They then flounder and don't obtain the grades their hard work and ability deserves. This book gives simple, essential advice on:

  • Personal organisation
  • Planning and writing for examinations, assignments and essays
  • Creating your all important personal dictionary
  • How to research for an assignment
  • Note-taking in lectures
  • How to organise revision
  • Working effectively in examinations
  • What is a "Gobbett" and how to deal with it!
  • Useful study aids

Despite her dyslexia, Rebecca graduated from university in 2008 with an honours degree in contemporary history and is a published author.
