Format: Paperback
I was required to read this book last year as part of my Masters degree course, and admit to wondering how it could help me. At this point in my studies, I thought I'd cracked it with essay writing, and I wasn't sure that a book could teach me how to write better. Wrong! It has proved absolutely invaluable - I've returned my library copy and bought my own.
The really useful thing about this book for me is that it's directly relevant to English Studies. It covers such subjects as how to choose a literary text to study, the differences between critical editions and where to start with research. It has very useful advice (which I've put to use) on the process of writing. One of the most useful tips was to keep a piece of paper nearby when writing an essay, which states the hypothesis and a brief statement of ideas so far, which should be regularly updated. This really helped me to keep focused on the question and not drift off.
I would recommend this book to all literature students - especially if you are studying beyond undergraduate level.

There are a few study guides such as this one that I always find myself returning to, more for reassurance than advice. This is well-written, short, and has practical advice for almost every aspect of writing a dissertation. Once you've dipped into this the prospect of embarking on a long piece of academic work becomes less daunting. This sits next to my dictionary and thesaurus - it's become that important!

it as help me to understand more I guess, but I did purchase another book -a fool prof which I found made it just that bit helpful or it could have been the combination of the two. That could have been me having an off day, need to read it again. sorry not sure if that's helped but its the truth.
