Review:

I learnt a thing or two that helped me understand my own first year experience, and even found some tips to help now. … The chapters on reading and essay writing are particularly helpful. Perhaps the most useful suggestion is that students should keep a regular journal during their time at uni in which to write about subjects, readings, rough plans for essays, and anything else they feel is relevant. The journal then becomes a personal record and a guide for study and personal growth. The main goal, then, is self-exploration … Those [first year students who buy the book] will find something to help them. Parents and teachers will also find The First Year Experience informative, as will anyone looking to improve their university experience. Bullsheet (James Cook University Students Association newspaper), 8 March 2004 The authors focus on everyday campus life, using students’ testimonies to highlight and solve common problems, including the mother of all afflictions – procrastination. Indigo Clarke, Cat 04/04, page 49
