50 Steps to Improving Your Academic Writing: 1
50 Steps to Improving Your Academic Writing: 1
by Chris Sowton
Edition: Paperback
Price: £25.00

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful
5.0 out of 5 stars Recommended!, 29 Oct. 2014
This is a very useful book which deals with many of the key features of academic writing in English, from evaluating academic sources to using punctuation accurately. It has a very accessible style, providing tasks which students can personalise, and encouraging students to think, so that they can instantly apply what they've learned to their work on an academic course. The division into fifty steps makes it much easier to dip into than some of the other popular Academic Writing textbooks. You can find what you are looking for very easily.
I would say this book is relevant for Foundation to Master's level students, and not just non-native speakers of English - anyone looking to improve their academic writing. It can be used in class or as a self-study book equally well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Do read it, 21 Jun. 2013
This review is from: Crow Lake (Paperback)
An impressive book - moving without being self-indulgent or sentimental. Excellent sense of place and the passage of time, with a growing sense of menace making it difficult to put down. I will be reading this again and would recommend it wholeheartedly.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not worth the little money I spent, 8 Nov. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This guide gives a reasonable overview of the main tourist places in Lanzarote - but nothing you couldn't get free online or in a travel brochure. It is unclear who the guide is really aimed at as it is vague on most things - doesn't seem very objective - and it is not clear from the description that it is VERY brief indeed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just a really, really good album., 5 Aug. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: In Our Heads (MP3 Download)
Rarely does a band put out an album with no duff tracks! This album seems a bit lighter and more dance focused than previous - it's easy to listen to, but not in a predictable way. The balance seems to be just right with gorgeous, catchy tunes, lyrics that make you smile (do I look like a rapper?) or think, and beats that make it difficult to stay still on public transport. As I say all the tracks deserve their place on the album but I particularly rate Flutes for its generous run time and juicy helping of nostalgia.
Highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very sweet little earrings, 24 Feb. 2012

Small subtle earrings which come in a nice box. They look lovely. I wish earring makers would supply extra butterfly holders as I always lose mine and then lose the earring...!

4.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous product, smaller bottle option please, 24 Feb. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I tried a sample of this and then got one for my mother, sister and sister-in-law for Christmas - they all really liked it too. It is reasonably priced considering my own 125ml bottle has not gone down much despite regular use - I think it will last about 6 months. This may depend on your hair. Mine is quite fine so I don't need much. It's very light and non greasy, leaves a nice shine, makes your hair feel healthy and moisturised, and the best bit is it has a really lovely smell which lasts for a few hours. I would give the product itself five stars, but I'd like a 100ml bottle to be made available to be able to take it as hand luggage when flying.

4.0 out of 5 stars Does what it says on the tube, 24 Feb. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This toothpaste works well as a general toothpaste and definitely has whitening properties. You have to bear in mind though (obviously) if you drink a lot of tea/coffee/red wine the effect is lessened. I like the taste of the product - does taste a bit like Dr Pepper and can smell a bit rubbery when you first open the tube though! The toothpaste is a lovely sparkly aqua colour. Have found the travel size to be invaluable as it gets through the liquid limits for hand luggage, so you don't have to switch brands for the odd weekend away.

4.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant twists and turns, 16 Mar. 2009
This review is from: This Charming Man (Paperback)
Marian Keyes is a great writer. The characters - even minor ones - in this book are believable and the plot really draws you in. There are some scenes that are not for the faint-hearted, so if you only wanted a romcom chicklit-style effort you might be a little disturbed! There are also some bits of dialogue that had me giggling out loud. Not in public, though, I wouldn't want to look like an eejit.
