    Bought for godson who wants to study law, he found it interesting and thought provoking (and still wants to study law)

    Essential for every prospective law student

    A really practical, handy, book.I read this before beginning my law degree as a mature student so some of it about life on campus was not relevant for me, but there is still a huge amount of value in here and I'm sure I'll keep it throughout my studies to refer back to.

    Beautifully written, the quality of the prose is a breath of fresh air compared to most legal writing, which unfortunately, is notoriously unwelcoming. The book really helps to clarify the factors for consideration before deciding to make the substantial commitment to studying law at university. Various thought experiments based refreshingly on common sense and solid reasoning help students understand and develop their own views around fundamental ethical issues giving an important grounding for the study of law, or any social science for that matter.

    This book got me into Cambridge - it's as simple as that. McBride is an experienced law tutor and writes in a way that is clear, helpful, engaging and accessible. That combination of traits is very rare, particularly in the legal world. If you're thinking about applying to do law at any university and don't know where to start, or need some advice, this is the book to buy. I can give no higher praise than that this was the first book I bought when I first started thinking about doing law, where I looked when writing my applications, what I read the night before my Cambridge interview, and what I have referred to since being accepted to help guide my reading.

    I found this book really useful as an insight into what a Law degree would entail, and when I begin my law course this year I am certain that I will refer to it during my study too. Some great advice on preparing yourself for a Law degree, from choosing your univeristies, to reccomending books for you to read, and then how to organise your study once at university. I have bought most of the books that are reccomended in this books and they have also proven very useful in opening my mind and teaching me more about society. This book is so good that after origionally getting it from my local library, I went out and bought it so that I could keep it to refer back to as I progress in my Law career!

    Plenty of letters but I would advise using emails next time.

    I bought this book really late into my 2nd year at Law school, where I have felt there has been little direction as to what is to be expected of me in order to achieve higher marks.However, I love the way it is written in letter format, making it really personable and simple reading. It really nips in the bud those real issues that students need help in. I'm currently saturated in the last few chapters as my exams approach and it has been so helpful in terms of prepartion and essay and problem Q writing.I really do wish I had this before I started my Degree, however now I can go into my 3rd year with assurance of what is expected of me and how to cope.
