I recommend this guide to all my students even if they are already quite adept in using their reading in assignments. It quite simply makes for them getting better marks and my job in marking their work a far more pleasurable and positive experience. Nobody likes to get a referral on their work, but students who didn't get this point yet, lecturers don't like giving referrals.

This review is from: How to Use your Reading in your Essays (Palgrave Study Skills) (Paperback)
I was very impressed by Jeanne Godfrey's book. As a teacher of academic skills, I have recommended it to all of my students. It is written in a non-academic way to be accessible to all levels and nationalities of students and has extremely useful models, examples and appendices. This book is a must for any skills teacher and any student from A-level upwards. If you want to improve your reading and writing skills, buy this book now!
