Study and Communication Skills for the Biosciences - 2nd edition

Study and Communicatiosn Skills for the Biosciences
I'm really pleased to say that the 2nd edition of my and Jon Scott's first book, Study and Communication Skills for the Biosciences, has just been published by Oxford University Press. After a successful first edition and then a follow up for the Chemical Sciences, OUP asked us to produce a 2nd edition, which we gladly did. In addition to substantial revisions it also includes a whole new chapter on employability.

Here's the blurb:
"Study and Communication Skills for the Biosciences is tailored specifically to the needs of bioscience students, both at university, and beyond. Written in an engaging and supportive manner, with examples throughout that demonstrate the relevance of topics covered to bioscience degree programmes, the book will assist you with the transition from school to university, with your studies at university, and with your progression to employment after leaving university. New to this edition, the chapter on making yourself employable provides invaluable advice on honing those skills most sought after by prospective employers and applying these skills after your degree is completed; it discusses how to make contacts and gain experience, and how to sell yourself to potential employers in an increasingly competitive job market. With a broad range of study and communication skills included, it is essential reading for any bioscience student who wants to get the most out of their degree."

Available in all good book shops...
