3.0 out of 5 stars Great tips, just a dull read...
This book has set out to explain exactly how to write, and go about writing, a history essay. The tips and hints which the book explain are useful and worth reading... However these tips are sort of encased in quite a lot of irrelevant information which makes it a dull read. I feel the book (short as it is) could be shorter and more to the point.
If you are planning...

If you are planning on buying a book on essay writing etc... I would recommend a much more interesting read such as Bryan Greetham's How to Write Better Essays (Palgrave Study Skills).

1.0 out of 5 stars Who is this even aimed for?, 3 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It says a "student's guide" but I can only assume now that it means people who might be studying for their phd or master degree in history?! I'm studying a2 and I'm struggling a bit with essay writing so I thought this book could help me! Man was I wrong! Firstly, I look in the contents and it tells me: an essay is an essay or something along the lines of that. Then, it comes to actually reading it! I found it very hard to understand because it was full of fancy words and all I wanted to look at was now to organise my ideas and look at example essays. If I knew how to return products on amazon (and if I actually could be bothered!) I'd return this asap. If you're a college student or younger, I would definitely not recommend this! Wate of money!
