Sun Tzu Said Do Not Court Disaster

How to Pass a Degree with Confidence
A study guide for a university or college degree.  

Anthony Fox MSc BSc Hons

The wise words of Sun Tzu the Chinese philosopher and military general should be a prerequisite for any aspiring student. Needless to say many students do court their own disaster from my experience. What will go wrong often does. As a student representative at university I often heard many students complaining when things went wrong like failing to back up their assignments. It is easy to preach wise words but far too many students fail to follow first principles and learn. One of the commonest mistakes students made was failure to backup their documents. It sounds so simple Sid, and it is.

To avoid courting disaster the quickest and free way is to email a copy of the document to yourself. That way you have a backup copy, and if you need to you can keep a daily archive of progress. This method is especially useful when you are compiling an assignment, project, dissertation or any other lengthy document. Of course there are many methods which you could employ to backup your data that is your choice but the point is to make sure you do. Because when it is least expected it is usually when it happens – complete disaster you lose everything.

I devote a chapter in my book to: why students fail with explanation and examples so that you don’t fail?

Plus: the number one topic you should understand, it could mean the difference between passing and failing?

Here is a list of stories included in “How to Pass a Degree with Confidence” they are not in any order, purely random.

To be or not to be

It’s never too late

We don't all wear the same shoes

We have all the time in the world

Sat there like a Cheshire cat

There’s a bit more meat on the bone

More stress than a chaining smoking nurse

The golden rule

How I got my T-Shirt

A girl came knocking on my window

Realise your potential it’s within you to succeed. Your success is not proportional to the effort you put in, that part is purely random.

I can win the lottery in a second, but spend a lifetime finding a cure for cancer. Which is more rewarding?

As Jesus said, “belief is everything.”
