Product Description

Review

Volumes that help science students improve their writing, editing, or presentation skills are not uncommon; this excellent new offering, however, has a remarkable breadth of scope. Instead of focusing on one or two aspects of scientific communication, the authors have developed 14 independent chapters that emphasize planning, organization, and time management applied to basic study tasks, essay writing, field and laboratory reports, group projects, note taking, pre-test study and test taking, presentations, poster development, and other essential skills. A lengthy and especially valuable chapter discusses plagiarism with numerous useful examples and avoidance tips. The writing and format are admirably clear. Language style is conversational, direct, and spare; short sections are organized with headings and subheadings; illustrations and graphics are appropriate, effectively support text, and add readability. THE QUARTERLY REVIEW OF BIOLOGY Although aimed at readers new to higher education, I think the book has a great deal to offer postgraduate students too; the information on good listening skills can just as easily be applied to conference talks and good communication skills are essential whatever the level of a presentation. I liked this book very much - pity it wasn't around when I was a student. Microbiology Today Even though I am in my final year I have used the chapters on essay preparation and plagiarism recently and the chapters covering scientific presentations and creating academic posters will be particularly useful for presenting my final year project next semester Roweida Sammour, Student, Leeds University If I had to give my first-year tutees one book to start their time at university and launch them into the Higher Education landscape then this would probably be it.
