Critical Praise

<p>‘I thought the book was a must! Although a self- study book, it covered areas that we teach on the EAP pre-sessional course (…) I liked the fact it was so compact and offered a fresh view on most of the areas we have to cover, such as, plagiarism and paraphrasing. It is a condensed, practical and clear guide to academic writing.' Sharon Noseley, UK</p><p>‘This title goes beyond the actual writing of an essay to include the continued development of the student’s ability and in-depth analysis of essay extracts. It guides the students through the questions they should be asking themselves while composing an academic text. (…) A very useful supplementary tool for EAP students and those on pathways programmes or pre-sessional courses. It would also be a popular and essential addition to a self-study centre.’ Sharon Chalmers, Director of Studies from Live Language, Glasgow (full review published by BEBC Review Panel http://www.bebc.co.uk/bookreviewwriting)</p> -
