The Student Survival Guide
Second Edition

By Phil Chambers & Elaine Colliar

Aimed at students of all ages, this book will show you the secrets of how to pass GCSEs, A-Levels and University courses with excellent grades but without spending more time studying. Imagine that, pass with straight A’s and STILL have a social life!

Fourteen students from four South London schools approached us with a single burning ambition: “Show us what we need to get A’s in our A-levels and we will do it” - and they did!

Despite three having dyslexia and one having cerebral palsy, ALL passed their exams with flying colours - An amazing 42 ‘A’ grades between them. Even more fantastic, one young lady decided to study for A-level Spanish with only six months to go before the exams “Because learning was now so easy - I wanted a new challenge”

See how you too can achieve similar success.

"In my opinion, what you are currently doing is the best of what there is available. The presentation is clear and concise. Explanations are accessible and well informed. You have provided content with depth and you have a passionate commitment to what you do."
Anne Jones, former English teacher & seven times World Speed Reading Champion.

"Thank you for the copies of "The Student Survival Guide" which we are promoting across Fife Education Service.

It truly reflects the course so successfully delivered to several hundred teaching and support staff.

This very practical training day inspired many in the memory/study skills and I now see examples of mind mapping widely used across the sectors.

Staff and pupils have made good use of it in planning writing, sharing the agenda for topic work in Environmental Studies/Social Subjects/Religious and Moral Education and in preparing a talk. Some individuals have set targets using a mind map and others use mind maps as a book review for the Library. We will continue to promote the training and now the book.

Congratulations to all concerned on a job well done. We look forward to a continuing partnership in 2005."
Anne Morton, Quality Improvement Officer, Fife Council Education Service.
