Book Description

1 Oct 2012 Religious Studies
Many students fall down not on knowledge but on how to arrange, analyse and evaluate an argument so that the question is fully and clearly answered. Written by two experts in the subject, this book uniquely uses twelve real examples of essays written in actual exams to demonstrate conclusively how to write a top philosophy essay. Mistakes in arguments are clarified and suggestions made of how to practise structuring an argument for maximum effect. This book is a must-read for anyone seeking to improve their essay-writing skills. PLEASE NOTE: This book covers equally Ethics and Philsophy essays. Intended to teach you how to write your own essays, this guide should be used in conjunction with the website for model answers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exactly what I was looking for! 22 Mar 2013
By Owen
I am only a student at A2 but retaking AS level as I was a grade short of an A and need one for my offers. Writing essays was my problem but this book in how to write them is exactly what I've been looking for as it explains it so well and has examples.
The supporting Philosophical investigations website is the most useful resource I have to getting good grades and is incredibly helpful. When I saw they sold these books I was amazed and the sample chapter showed how thorough they were yet easy to grasp and well written

1.0 out of 5 stars Very disappointing 8 Jan 2014

I bought this book to see whether I would recommend it to my students. Short answer - no! I personally thought that it said very little of value, and in particular would confuse AS students.

Purchased to assist daughter with A level revision and practice. This was an expensive mistake, £15 plus delivery for a book with only 97 pages and it is only A5 size; so there is not actually that much useful information included. This book promises a lot, but comes up short. Not enough useful examples, my advice....try borrow one from the library or buy 2nd hand, definitely NOT worth the money. Purchased on the back of the author, but feel very ripped off.

3.0 out of 5 stars Worth a quick read 11 April 2014
By mai
Some useful tips but nothing ground breaking and not written in a format that is easily accessible by sixth form students.
