Study Skills (GCSE)

Study skills for students facing exams, with tips, science and advice. I co-wrote it with three other experts. My topics were about preparing your brain and mental health and managing stress. I talk about sleep, nutrition, exercise, as well as stress and learning tips, and I take the approach of a sports coach preparing you for a big competition.

Available from all good shops and suppliers.

This as one of the most enjoyable commissions of my career. Leckie and Leckie knew exactly what they wanted, explained it clearly and looked after me really well while I wrote it. The editing process was smooth as silk. And they’ve given away freebies and done a great job of supporting it. AND I got to go to the Local Hero Awards in Edinburgh!

See their fab website here. With videos 🙂

I also blogged for them several times – see here.

There are two editions, one for Scotland (National 5s and Higher exams) and England/elsewhere (GCSE). Different covers, identical content.

After all, a brain is a brain and an exam is an exam, wherever you are.
