Writing good essays can be a real challenge.  If you need a helping hand (or simply want to improve your technique) this book sets out proven approaches and techniques which can help everyone write good essays.

Extensively revised and updated, this 4th edition includes new material such as:

  • A chapter on essay planning, focusing on literature searching (using online materials), note-taking and formulating an argument
  • A comparison of essay writing to exam writing
  • The use of academic language, vocabulary and register, and its 'accuracy and appropriateness'
  • A new Companion Website providing additional activities, downloads and resources.

The authors focus on answering key questions you will face when preparing essays - What do tutors look for when marking my essay? What kind of skills do I need as I progress through my course? How can I avoid inadvertent plagiarism? What are the protocols for referencing?

Encapsulated in easy to digest summaries, this edition shows you how to approach different types of essay questions, addresses common worries, and provides extensive use of worked examples including complete essays which are fully analysed and discussed.
