How to Succeed at University (and get a great job):
Mastering the Critical Skills You Need for School, Work and Life

by Thomas R. Klassen & John A. Dwyer


The secrets of succeeding at school are a turn of the page away.

Political science professor Thomas Klassen and humanities emeritus professor John Dwyer lay out the secrets to success for university students in their new book – an ideal resource for students at all stages of their academic careers. The book provides practical advice for mastering the day-to-day tasks of being a student such as writing essays, lab reports and exams. The authors also focus on developing research strategies and critical skills that can take students from the classroom to the boardroom and beyond.
