I'm almost done with this book - as I'm not at uni yet, I haven't actually bothered to read past the pre-degree chapters as I have loads of other reading to catch up on. So far however, I have found this a pleasant and engaging read, less stiff and boring than other law-prep/law-related books. It maintains an informal and comfortable enough tone without seeming cheesy, while including all terminology and in-depth explanations without alienating the reader. I have, admittedly, a short attention ...more

At times the book is challenging, but what better way to prepare you for Uni than to start making you think? Some issues in the book, you may not agree with. That is fine, you

This book, loaded with useful tips and helpful advice, is an excellent one for preparing a soon-to-be law student (like myself) for an upcoming law degree. Whether you are still considering studying law or whether you have already decided to study law and will soon be actually studying it, this book will in either situation help you out considerably. The language and tone is lighter and easier to get into than your average book-about-law and definitely worth the investment for your studies later ...more

Well organised read that will educate and console any law student by guiding them through the process of how to manage their studies whilst demonstrating which approach works best and what one should expect.
Great introduction for anyone considering pursuing a law qualification and career.

Condescending and self-important in places, but the tone doesn't detract from its indisputable essentiality to any student
