Format: Paperback
This book is definitely a writing cook book for nonnative speaker of English. I found many useful phrases that I can modify and use them for my thesis. This book also guided me to use appropriate words to construct the right sentences. It is a kit for survival in your thesis writing up.

excellent, especially for self-study 10 Oct 2005
By HGtbrd - Published on
Format: Paperback
I have taught academic writing for almost 10 years and have myself put together a handbook. This is the single best book that I have found for self-study for non-native speakers. In fact, it is not only useful for graduate students, but for anyone who looks to improve their formal language skills, for professional purposes such as report-writing.

It includes many useful exercises, covering details and nuances of the English language. The sample materials are interesting and engaging. It has sections on all the important aspects and comprehensively covers the subject, including formal grammar and style, data commentary, writing summaries & critiques and ends with two chapters that guide readers through constructing their own research paper.

The authors share some of the writing that their students have done, which also supports the learning process, as you consider what works, and what doesn't. I haven't seen the 2004, second edition, so I cannot compare.

If, as a non-native speaker you are looking for a great book to work with, this is what you need. The same is true if you teach non-native students to write academically. I recommend inquiring, if you buy secondhand, what state the book is in, because if the exercises have been filled out already, it will detract from the value.
