Product Description

Review

'I thoroughly enjoyed the author's style of writing. She combines a firm and clear sense of how things should be done with some light touches of humour. The tone is approachable and supportive and I feel that this is one of the best selling points for the book. The combination of occasional short, decisive sentences adds to the tone of authority within the work.' - Lucinda Becker, University of Reading, UK

'Having taught mature - return-to-study - students and participated in research into mature students' experiences of nurse education, I realize only too well their insecurities over writing coursework assignments. This book is aimed at all such students...a very useful study guide...' - Christine Webb, Journal of Advanced Nursing

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book was recommended to me by my tutor at university in order to bring me (as a mature student) up to date on how to put together an accepted format in essay writing. It has all the relevant information and advice for structuring a piece of text in an acceptable way - helpful, of course, when trying to get as high a mark as possible. Recommended!
