A practical, positive, utterly sensible guide for exam students, for the best chance of success.
Exams are stressful and most people don’t love them! This book can’t remove all your exam nerves and, anyway, a certain level of stress can help you perform well. Instead this book aims to help you avoid bad stress and have the greatest chance of doing your best when exams arrive.
It will give you the tools to control your body and mind during this challenging phase. And the tools will help you at many other stressful times of life.
Exam Attack covers a huge range of learning techniques. You’ll find advice on food (and how to cope when you lose your appetite), sleep, panic, revision, getting help, managing screens and social media. And there’s up-to-date advice on note-taking and learning.
One of the core principles in this book is that our mental and physical health, or ‘wellbeing’, affects how we perform. It isn’t a luxury or optional extra: it affects every aspect of life.
