Lots of little nuggets of information in this book as well as a step by step guide to a well structured essay. The author points to the importance of structure in an essay and it really is a lot easier to write an essay with this clear framework. If you're writing an essay you need to buy this book, it'll only take a couple of hours and will pay dividends.

EDIT: The essay I wrote shortly after reading this book was given an outstanding first class with 5/5 marks for layout! Many thanks to the author!

As a lecturer at a red brick English university, I must say that I'm genuinely impressed with this little discovery. One of my students asked me to have a look at it to make sure that the essay writing principles it outlines were acceptable.

At first I was sceptical of the title. I would never recommend a student attempts to write an essay in 24 hours (although I'm aware that it is done by some of my students - sometimes to an exceptionally high standard!) but, having said that, the content of this book really, really impressed me.

The guidelines it sets forward - if taken on board - will certainly help students achieve first class marks. The vast majority of undergraduate and graduate marking that I do is spent penalising basic errors of poor structure and failures to answer the set question with sufficient focus and analytical detail. After reading this book I really think it provides a de facto method of avoiding those pitfalls and opening up the door (to steal the writer's analogy) to those top marks.

Additionally, it is written in a style that is highly accessible to students and not quite so dry and dense as some of the similar materials in our University library).

So all in all, very impressed. Would recommend to any undergraduate, postgraduate - and even an A-Level student wishing to get their essays in spotless order before university!

Hope that helps,

James.

The book is written in a format that makes the content easy to digest, and good too, because as the title suggests, this book will be a companion to all students serious about reaching the top grades. The essay writing process is broken down into clear identifiable stages, making assignment writing an easier and more straightforward 'roadmap' process. If you've already graduated, you'll wish this book had been available sooner!

Very useful information. As a mature student, with no A levels-but studying for a BA in Eng Lit, attaining 2.1 and 1st intermittently throughout the first year of a (BA Fasttrack) 2 year course... this concise, factual kindle book laid everything out simply. My 'hit and miss' attempts of earlier in the year came to 3 final assignments of 1st's. V pleased I invested the £3.95(most i have probably paid out on a kindle read and I have over 1000 books on my kindle). Hints and tips... plus guideline percentages of layout and content. Thank you very much M H-Eddison!

Having started studying for a degree later in life, I'd never written an academic essay.
This book showed me step by step how to break it down into
manageable and effective chunks. I wouldn't be without it!

I purchased the book for my nephew who is at college and he said the book was very helpful to him and especially at home doing homework. The book is American but the concepts are the same and he said he would recommend the book to anyone working towards a degree.

Found it pretty useful. Returning to education was nerve wrecking enough and this little book helped me to get a grasp as to what was expected. Easy to read, encouraging language. Reasonably priced too.

This is a good read. It lays the essay writing process out step by step, so do get your highlighter out and take notes. Reading this made me a lot more confident as I am in the process of writing my dissertation. I would recommend to anyone write up their first draft of their essay then read this book it will help. It tells you about marking, structure, style and some other extra tip. It gives good examples too which is fab. Its a free download and a clear and short read so its worth giving a go. I did find it helpful and would recommend to my mates.
