This book is the first subject-specific study guide for mathematics students (interpreted broadly to mean those who are studying for single- or joint-honours degrees). It includes practical information on managing oneself as a student but, unlike generic study guides, it applies this advice to a degree involving numerous lectures on technical material, regular homework assignments, and a variety of testing regimes. More importantly, the book begins with a broad and deep discussion of ways in which undergraduate mathematics differs from school mathematics. It discusses the typical skills, beliefs and expectations of an incoming undergraduate, and explains ways in which these will need to be adapted and extended. In particular, it provides detailed illustrations showing how to interact effectively with definitions, theorems and proofs. It takes the mystery out of the transition to undergraduate mathematics, and its friendly and conversational style makes challenging ideas accessible and provides the student with the information they will need to study successfully.
