The essential guide for any student studying science or technology. This book introduces the core academic skills students in this area need to learn & apply to succeed at university. It focuses on three key skills areas- research, argumentation and critical analysis; quantitative methods; and the conventions of written and oral communication.

It explains how to read scientific literature and understand its different language style, terminology, data and argument analysis. And conflicting interpretations. Next, the book tackles how to take data from a range of sources to construct your own perspective on a scientific issue & how to present it in both written & oral forms. Lastly it assists with one of the most fundamental of all tools for any branch of science- an understanding of the basic laws of mathematics.

Key topics include an introduction to tertiary study, e-learning & assessment; reading scientific literature, thinking & arguing critically; writing, research and presenting; and quantitative methods including fundamental mathematics, calculus, problem solving and statistics.

Focused on step-by-step skills development, this book aims to help readers become better students who are more likely to succeed.
