Format: Paperback
This is a welcome additional to the growing body of literature in the world of academic writing. With its clear format, easy-to-follow contents page and near comprehensive coverage of the main bases of academic writing, it will equip both international and native students with the understandings and skills they need to cope with the writing of academic assignments. I have certainly been able to use sections to guide my own teaching and those of my students who have bought copies for themselves have reported increasing confidence with writing (the most difficult skill for non-native students to master!).

To obtain the answers to all of the exercises, you need to go online to MacMillan's website. This hardly makes the book a convenient handbook.

Format: Paperback
As a teacher of English for Academic Purposes, I've found the best thing about this book is that it works well both as a coursebook for classroom use, and a self-study/reference book which lets students work by themselves or revise. They find Academic Writing is organised in a straightforward way, and the website provides extra exercises and answers. Highly recommended.

This book provides excellent practice for international students to master the stages in writing a variety of academic genres. It is logically organised and practical with a strong emphasis on citation and referencing in order to avoid plagiarism. Strategies to develop paraphrasing are also valuable.

Bailey's work is solid enough + updated version is an improvement. Easy to use. Classes of this nature are often very tedious for the trainer and this book provides a solution. Great for non-thinking teacher. Just plug in the class and stroll around.
