Useful as a course book or as a self-study guide, this text is essential reading for all international students studying for a British qualification at university. It provides a clear guide to the areas that need to be considered in order to research and produce a well presented and cohesive piece of academic writing. The steps outlined, and the language used, are accessible, and graded to a level that steadily introduces new writing concepts to students studying for a degree in a second or additional language. In particular it covers planning, conducting research, critical thinking, structuring an essay, use of sources and referencing, and feedback and revision.
