'This unusual, detailed, and thought-provoking book will help students of English Literature come to grips with their studies and take a share of responsibility for their own learning. It thus has the potential to make a major impact on the way English is studied.' - Professor Ben Knights, Director, English Subject Centre
'I liked this book a lot - It covered a vast amount, ranging from applications and interviews, Preparatory exercises, through it's materials that will prove useful when a student starts their course. Great sections on suggestions for group activities that instructors may find useful.' - Matthew Woodcock, University of East Anglia
