If you're a student in further or higher education, or preparing to become one, this book is for you. Note that I don't differentiate between further and higher levels, simply because the techniques for exam success are fundamentally the same. In fact, many of the skills in this book–from essay planning to memory tricks–are skills I also teach GCSE and A-level pupils. The difference lies not so much in the techniques themselves, but in the depth and detail with which you choose to apply them in your work.
This book will help you develop a confident and capable approach to coursework and exams in the formats most common at higher levels. That approach should also lead you to succeed in other assessment situations particular to your course.
