Having nearly completed the second year of a Psychology degree I decided to buy this book on recommendation for ideas to improve research reports. I must admit that I wasn't too impressed when the book dropped through the door as it reminded of a ring bindered cook book, however, appearances can be deceiving. This book is an information mine for any essay or research report as it reitterates the correct use of grammer and punctuation, explains critical thinking, and correct referencing styles used by the BPS. There are also examples of bad essays and research reports, and good essays and research reports which enables you to compare the writing styles and improve your own work. Already believing that my essays were magnificent although sometimes inconsistent ;) it was interesting to learn how my writing varied from one assignment to another, and how I could ensure that I always received the best marks attainable.
This book really is a worthwhile investment whether you are just starting your course, or need some help in polishing your assignments. A MUST for any student!
