Feedback from students

“I really appreciate the style at which it is written; it’s written in a way that, as a student, I can picture in my head the different examples of scenarios that other students have gone through, and because of this, I can relate to it more”.
“It was an amazing idea to include a chapter on stress, especially since a lot of books relating to revision tips don’t touch a lot on stress, and how powerful the human mind is in thinking negative thoughts that can affect a student’s ability to perform as well as they can. Very very happy with this”.
