A study guide for a university or college degree.
Anthony Fox MSc BSc Hons
The following excerpt (How to Pass a Degree with Confidence) is a story from personal experience about how you pass exams. One of many personal experiences reflected in a series of stories throughout the book.
A study guide including: How to write your project or dissertation, exam preparation, how to research, time management, how to reference correctly, critical thinking, how to study, how to revise, a girl game knocking at my window, how to build confidence, the need to set goals, a student perspective, how to cope with stress, how to cope with meagre funds, score more goals than Casanova, top tips for university, and much more.
"very well written and organized tutorials…its indeed a great help for beginners like me to keep up the interest and at the same time learn this important subject."
"Brilliant. One of the very best I have read. Well written, with style and intelligence. I have spent hours looking for erotica like this... ."
Each chapter recalls a personal experience that helps to reinforce the academic topic. Every important academic aspect is covered to help you achieve what you want.
Score More Goals than Casanova
I remember playing in the university five a side soccer team for our course; I wasn’t a Casanova for sure although plenty were. Let me tell you a story which is set in my final year as an under graduate, while doing a BSc in computing at Plymouth University. I think it’s important because it’s all about goals.
One of the modules I chose to take was mobile communications, specifically about understanding radio frequencies and all that jazz.
Well, our tutor was a bit of a maverick, a likeable heavy weight but with the enthusiasm that would knock you sideways as you listened to his predictions about future technology advances. He was hands on, in the sense that he would encourage questions, and he always had time for his students. But he also ran a strict regime within which he was no soft touch. His tutorials and lectures meant business, if you weren’t listening he might ask you a question and if you didn’t have a reasonable answer you would look a jerk in front of your peers.
To be fair though, he told you right at the beginning that if you didn’t keep up, you would quickly fall behind and not be able to pass the module. Sometimes, after he asked a question it would be a few seconds before two or three people from a class of 50 might put their hand up. The module was mostly about mathematics and decibels and how radio waves work, which was all new to me. I found it interesting though, but it was still a challenge. It was good that he made you think and didn’t just give you the answers to problems, something that was to trigger my mind later when I was researching my dissertation which I talk about in another chapter.
He had an infectious enthusiasm for problem solving and specifically for understanding the engineering requirements for radio communication, whether it’s a paging device, satellite communications, a mobile phone system or any other systems that involves radio wave frequencies.
We spent days working on cost budget analysis which sounds like an accountant’s phrase for adding up the bottom line, but it isn’t. The cost budget analysis turned out to be a set of complicated mathematics for determining how a radio communication system will perform in the real world.
We could for example, see why a satellite phone system that costs billions of dollars to implement would ultimately fail, and this was currently on the market. More
