About this deal

You must grow strong enough to love the world, yet empty enough to sit down at the same table with its worst horrors.

Detailed with facts, advice and key dates to look out and up for throughout the year, plus monthly calendars to reveal the delights of the night sky wherever you are. We think it's a great collection of space and astronomy books, but if you think we've forgotten any please do let us know over on the Science Focus book club Facebook group. From an astronaut's memoir to understanding the physics of the Universe, here are great books that each open up a new window into space.Another thing to look out for is a subject that you’ve never had a chance to study before, especially those that link to the subjects you have taken previously. Open it up, dive into the data, and be prepared to want to share everything you learn with everyone around you. For this reason, you don’t need to flaunt your past grades (or your target grades for the future) in your personal statement.

I am now in my second year but lots of the book is still very useful even now (especially the new drinking game ideas)! If there are a few different subjects that you particularly enjoyed or excelled in during your GCSEs, A Levels, BTECs or IB years, and you can’t quite pick one, then investigate all of them.Neil deGrasse Tyson is director of the Hayden Planetarium at the American Museum of Natural History and the author of many books, including Astrophysics for People in a Hurry. Things like "croaky like a frog" just completely threw me off because they were so unnecessary - I know what croaky means. I’ve been to countless talks at top universities about how to concoct the perfect personal statement and so, with this guide, I’ve got you covered.

Culture: Edinburgh has the Fringe, Manchester and London are cultural capitals, Brighton and Newcastle have wild nights out. As someone who is generally quite anxious about the unknown and also (hopefully) starting university this year, this was just what I needed! Welcome to the Universe in 3D provides a fascinating journey through the observable universe, from Earth to the big bang. Alternatively, there’s always the safety-net option of taking what’s known as ‘combined honours’, which means you study multiple subjects.

I wish it were more chronological; such as student finance and the stuff you need to know before university at the beginning and then speak about Freshers and leave the dissertation help for towards the end. I really did not want to mark this book so low but I thought he was just a bit forceful with some of his ideas that I did not agree. It's not a hobby reserved for those who can afford a telescope, nor is it completely inaccessible to city-goers who spend most of their time under a light-polluted sky. I just finished Jack´s book and I can guarantee three things; 1) I am still struggling to say the book title without misspelling some words.
