I made this book thinking of you, of how difficult the life of an architecture student is in all dimensions. Ive been there. In it you will find great hints and tips on what to expect from the course, what the teachers are really asking, how to manage your time, and how to improve your cultural know-how, as well as to find why youre taking this course and how to remake yourself as a person. I will be encouraging you to go all the way to graduation day. You will learn to deal with failure and mistakes, to stay focus on your target, about the sacrifices that the course requires for you to succeed, to be disciplined, and most of all, what is architecture all about. Ive also added a terminology for architecture so that you become acquainted with the architecture jargon and enrich your knowledge.
