c. The following excerpt is from page 7 of the book “How to succeed at your studies”, published by Good Books Ltd, Melbourne, 2018 and written by W. Done:
University study is like attending a smorgasbord restaurant. There are many very helpful resources available to students. However some students are like the person at a smorgasbord restaurant who is expecting waiter service. To have a good experience at a smorgasbord restaurant, you need to get out of your chair. You need to go and view the food on offer and after viewing all the food determine which dishes you will choose. You need to serve yourself. You then return to your table and eat your meal. To have good success at university use the resources available on the study desk for your course and those available on the university’s website. You’ll find the study desk has links to various resources to help with your assignments and further your knowledge. Doing the activities provided will also add to your knowledge and help in assignment preparation. Don’t be like the person sitting at the restaurant table wondering why they are hungry.
