At the end of my second year, in frustration, I decided to get this book. I figured if it is good enough for masters students, it will do a lot of good for an undergraduate like myself.
My first essay in my third year, I scored 72, far higher than my average for the last 2 years.
This book really helped and it has a lot of examples of critical analysis, critical evaluation and how you can read your own work critically.
