Study and Communication Skills for the Chemical Sciences reviews the skills a chemistry student needs to develop to fulfil their true potential during their studies, and to enhance their employability beyond university.
Written in a practical, motivational style, with plenty of examples and advice to help the reader master the skills being explored, the book explains how to get the most out of lectures, tutorials, and group work; how to get the most out of the vast array of information that is available in books, in journals, and on the web; how to communicate your work and ideas effectively to others; and how to revise for and complete exams to give yourself the best chance of success.
Written specifically for chemistry students by an author team that includes one of the UK's leading chemical educators, Study and Communication Skills for the Chemical Sciences is the essential guide to getting the most out of your studies - and beyond.
