A good book for students in the early stages of academia, or those returning after a break,
This review is from: Reading, writing and reasoning (Open Up Study Skills) (Paperback)
Teaching at both undergraduate and masters level, this book deals with the most common questions raised by students with respect to how to go about academic writing. It covers a wide range of topics, from the basics through to how to develop and evaluate complex arguments, and provides a solid foundation for those looking for guidance on how to start, structure, and conclude written work.
There are shorter books out there, but there are much longer ones too. In this text, the authors do a great job of balancing detail and useful examples with clarity and accessibility.
