This book incorporates a unique framework through which students in social science programmes can make sense of the academic expectations surrounding reading and writing in their courses. Explained in a clear and logical manner, this framework is strongly linked to the learning needs of the student—the more I read, the more I want to try it.
This book provides a readable guide to structuring academic writing with the benefit of annotated reading. It is written with humour and a "pulling no punches" style.
This is an excellent book that provides clear advice not only on how to read, but also how to write academically and will be useful to undergraduate and masters students alike. The codes and the way that information is presented is reader friendly – the book can be used as a reference book or read cover to cover. I suspect for many people it will be both.
At last! A text that supplies the student with specific tools for the specific requirements for reading and writing in the social sciences.
A useful easy to read text to support new students on a degree programme
I found this to be a useful guide for students coming back to academic study after a break away. It is user friendly and has an easy going style which is ideal for returners to practice and study.
A treasure that will help students to develop and improve their academic writing skills.
A very concise and realistic approach to academic writing
Students found this really engaging and informative. It covers the major parts of academic writing and addresses some of the most common issues students encounter when writing at university level.
A good guide with solid advice on academic writing. Best suited to someone reading it in order, can be difficult to pick up and read individual sections, some of the language can be quite technical for novice readers.
This is very useful as a starting point for improving essay writing skills for mature students who are returning to study
