Book review The book “Essential Skill for Science & Technology” is divided into five parts. The title of the first part is you and tertiary study. In the first part, it tells the important of the graduate attributes that are able to lead a student to success and experienced in his or her life. It talks about the differences between high school’s life and university’s life. As university life might cause some difficulties to the students such as, academic preparedness, academic progress, financial affairs, personal concerns and so on. However, in this part have suggested the skills for academic success, and the important key to success in the academic is motivation. Once the students have entered University’s real life, the most problem found among the students is time management. Therefore, in this part suggests how we can cope or manage our time wisely by setting the goal, planning and making the study time table. It is also talk about the reason of late submission which might causes from several reason either person factor or outside factor. Procrastination is one of the reasons that cause the late submission and chaos time management. Learning and researching is the second part of this book. In this part, it talks about how learning style help the students to success in your study. Every student has the different learning style such as, some are visual learners and some might be the auditory learners. It also talk about the different ways to transferring information such as taking down note while listen to the lecturer, class tutorials or practices through the laboratory classes. Next, it talks about how the e-learning facilitates the students for their study in which, it helps them to find the easier information and able to interact with the lecturers or friends anytime and anywhere. Additionally, it also talks about how the assessment is the evaluation students’ knowledge and skills through the testing or examination. It suggests that the preparation, techniques for answering exam and self-confidence are the main keys contribute to the successfulness of the students. The title of the third part is critical and evaluation. This part talks about how reading the scientific literature helps the students to become more familiar with the language and terminology of the materials that they have read. Moreover, the practice of scanning and skimming also help the students to have the faster reading with the clearly comprehension. It talks about how the critical skill is the greatest skill for both scientist and the science students. Critical thinking plays the lead role to solve the science problem, thus it requires the learners to practice thinking through assessing the evidence, analysis the text and argumentation by asking themselves. Besides, it also talks about the academic argument. This argument is the way the students present their point to convince someone by the particular of the facts. The good argument includes with the acceptability, relevance and grounds. Furthermore, the argument should be logical and have the explicitly evidence. Continually, the fourth part is writing and presenting in the sciences. In this part, it provides the essential of academic integrity when we study at university. The academic integrity is how we are being honest and responsibility for our work. It reminds us that we need to avoid plagiarism and paraphrasing by sources other works. It also talks about the several referencing style such as author-date style and the Vancouver style. After learned about the referencing style, it also suggests the best way to write for the sciences in which, the students are required to analyse the question, planning for each structure and so on. It also talks about the function in writing the report and the essential of each section that need to provide the fully understanding for the reader. Apart from writing the sciences and the report, it talks about how to write a laboratory report and to write an article review. As writing the laboratory report requires passive voice and past tense. While, writing an article review requires simple structure and critical analysis. Next, it suggests how to make an interesting presentation as the speaker should have the preparation for the talk and use flow chart or other visual aids. In this part also tells about the three stages of editing which these three stages help the students to edit their work as best as they can by following each stage. The last part is quantitative method. This part talks about the steps in problem solving for instance, clarifying the problem, devising a plan of attack, implementing the plan and checking the answer. These steps help to solve the problem easier and improve the solving skills as well. Next, it also highlights some of the fundamental concepts of mathematics frequently found in science such as, power and roots, logarithms and many more. After that, it talks about the two major aspects of calculus which are differential calculus and integral calculus. The differential calculus is used to find the rates of change of functions. Simultaneously while, the integral calculus is used to find the magnitude of change. Lastly, it introduces the basic statistical terminology as well as the some of the statistic techniques that most use in the scientific field.
