A guide to starting university is an easy to read and practical book for students making the exciting leap towards university and adulthood. This book will help students prepare for for their upcoming year, by showing them many helpful and vital tips and tricks based on my own, and friends experiences, that we wish we had known before starting uni. The book is divided into six sections: What to bring before you go - this contains many slightly obscurer items that many students will forget, but almost every student will wish they had them right from the start. Social life - this will show you how to maximise your social experience at university, ranging from societies and sports teams, to different pre drinking games and chants. This section will also teach you many different fancy dress themes, and show you how tie make and tie your own toga. In order to lessen the pain of those unnavoidable headaches the day after, there is also a chapter on how to reduce hangovers, and also how to balance your social life with your studies. Food tips - this will give you little tips and tricks on how to save time cooking such as meal sharing, or cooking in bulk. This section also has five easy to learn recipes (vegetarian and non vegetarian options) that every student should master while in their first year. Household hacks - using a washing machine and keeping your room tidy may seem like two east tasks, but from past experience, it is amazing how many students find these two aspects of uni life particularly hard. This section will show you how to master both of these tasks, and also how often to wash bedsheets and towels, and the difference between halls and a house. Money hacks - how much they're likely to have (or how little), where it goes, and most importantly how to make more of it. It also shows how to budget, and what apps and cards can be used to get discounts. Lecture hacks - this section will tell you the difference between lectures, tutorials and seminars (and what they actually are), and how best to take notes. It will also tell you all about the dreaded library and how best to use it. It is a perfect gift for anyone preparing for university, and will certainly save you time and money, and make your uni experience much more enjoyable!

Animal Life in Fresh Water

by Professor L. E. Eastham Formerly Professor of Zoology in the University of Sheffield Most books are written with the intention of supplying some particular need, but few end with such single purpose. Mrs. Mellanby's is no exception, for while the author planned this work to serve as a guide to the school pupil, which function it fulfils in an admirable way, it will also prove of value to the teacher, the university student and the amateur naturalist. While it may be argued that it is not the function of the Uni versities to teach Natural History in the commonly accepted sense, it will always be the aim of Zoologists to know more about animals, what they are and do, where they live and why they live in particular environments. It is unfortunate, in view of the fact that the majority of students of Zoology enter the teaching pro fession, that the increasing load of instruction in morphology, physiology, cytology, genetics, evolution and the like frequently makes a personal study of animal life in relation to environment almost impossible. The fortunate ones visit the sea for a fort night's course in Marine Ecology; the others take posts in schools without even this respite and set about converting their academic learning to a school curriculum. The result is an undesirable and often slavish imitation of university method in the school class room.
