Packed with practical hints, study tips, short cuts and examples, this book is designed to help you throughout your degree.

Designed for all geography students, this guide delves into coping with conflicting time commitments, constructing essays, presentations with posters and in class, managing different styles of assessment, dissertations, tutorial activities, discussion and debate, and much, much more. Updated and revised throughout, this new edition contains a new chapter on Careers and CVs, showing how geography can help you develop skills of use to future employers.
