Welcome to DP History


No 1 tip for success: read as much as you can!

An exam marker once commented that there is only time in class to cover the

skeleton of the course. What you do in your own time determines whether your essays and exams look like Arnie, or the other guy.

No 2 tip for success:

REFERENCING PRACTICE:










Thank you for visiting my site.
One piece of advice I give all my students is to buy your own domain name (eg www.yourname.com) ... if it is still available. You have only one chance - once someone else with your name buys it - it is probably gone forever. I have used Panthur for a number of years, for a lot of domain registrations and web hosting services and found them brilliant for speed, uptime, easy of use and service.
If you find my site, or this advice, helpful, please consider registering your domain name with Panthur by following this link.
