This book gives clear guidance on tackling all aspects of undergraduate study including assignments. It assumes no prior knowledge and its real-life biological science examples make it both highly accessible and appropriate. If students get used to using it in the first year, it is reflected in their ability to tackle academic assignments. * Barbara Tigar, Liverpool Hope University *
This book is quite unique as it addresses an important gap within biosciences education and can support students' employability enormously [...] Having worked with biosciences students for nearly ten years, I am confident that this book will benefit them greatly. * Maria Duncan, University of Hertfordshire *
Review from previous edition Study and Communication Skills for the Biosciences is an excellent text. It contains all the advice that I have been giving students for years, all clearly explained, with appropriate examples. The authors clearly know what they are talking about. * Lorraine Weaver, University of Worcester *
An excellent learning resource for the bioscience student that will provide guidance whatever stage you are at in your degree! I would definitely recommend it. * Roweida Sammour, student, University of Leeds *
An excellent text covering the key areas in study skills and is nice to see information on topics such as making the most of lectures and using feedback as these are not widely covered in other texts. * Dr Sara Marsham, Newcastle University *
