Well written, attractive guide to writing business essays. I like the fact that it has been written by academics teaching in the field. I am currently reading through the book as there is so much good advice. It answers many of the questions my students are asking.
I recommend this text to international and mature students that I teach a variety of subjects too. It really helps those who have not had recent or UK based essay writing guidance.
Although there is some useful and interesting informaiton in this book, I find the presentationa bit dry and unappealing. I think it would also benefit from some more practical exercises for students. But, my key issues if the section on referencing p. 54 implies that Harvard and APA are the same. Ahtough they both follow the author date patterm, the two are distinct in many ways.
This book is really well organised and very helfpul to help students with their writing. The details on how to write paragraphs and an entire essay are very good as they are detailed in a steps by steps way. The examples of good essays are also very useful. I have recommended it to 1st year students and international students who have difficulties with their writing in different research methods and study skills courses. I will recommend it to 3rd year undergraduate students who will have to do their dissertations.
Good chapter on referencing. I would recommend this text to students who are not used to essay based assessment.
For the Level 7 and above standard this is book is really helpful to understand the concept of essay writing.
One of the best book for step-by-step and easy mastering of writing skills.
I'm recommending this read to all students who have to produce essay type submissions. It's been ordered for the library collection.
A useful tool to provide support for overseas students.
book is tailored to the specific needs of this group of students, some of whom are not used to writing at undergaduate level.
