What People are Saying About This
Excellent, clearly rooted in reality, with lots of good advice on how to do well, how to make the most of Higher Education and what can be done if things don't seem to be working out. The sections on work placement and employers and about organisational and social skills have particularly good advice.' – Jim Breithuapt, Wigan and Leigh College
