The authors draw on many years’ experience of working with bioscience students to introduce the skills needed to succeed in the Life Sciences at University. The user-friendly format, derived from the Study Skills guide given to new students at Leeds University, includes everything a beginning student needs to know about how to learn, how to make the most of teaching, how to present work, how to revise and pass exams, how to use computers effectively, how to plan the final year and beyond.
Invaluable advice on topics such as time management, improving your memory, writing essays, and critical analytical thinking are covered in this practical, no-nonsense handbook that puts you at the heart of the learning process.
Put simply, whether you are going to university straight from school to study for a life sciences degree, returning to education as a mature student, or beginning study in the UK for the first time, Studying Science is your passport to success.
This version of the book is for those with computers running on Microsoft Office 2007. For those with computers running on Microsoft Office 2003, a different version of the book is available, ISBN 9781904842699.
To see the Appendices for both programs please visit the website, where they are available as pdfs.

"The book has plenty of good advice for all students but [is] particularly suited for those who fail to get to grips with the University environment quickly and need ‘one simple guide’ to accompany them...Throughout the book the writing is very informative while delivered in a style which is very readable. Key terms and concepts are highlighted in the text in a balanced way, providing tips for the novice and improving students. The book may also serve well to inform parents about the context and expectations of the modern university environment and enable them to assist their offspring in maintaining a reasonable balance and attitude towards their studies."
T.J. McAndrew, Bioscience Education, December 2009
