Product Description

Review

Praise for business writing success: 'The course gave me a boost of confidence that shows I am capable of drafting letters.' 'I learnt such a lot from the course, I take a bit longer over everything I write now, but it is amazing the difference if you change the 'tone' of the message.' 'I feel a lot more confident using punctuation. I found the course interesting and everything is explained clearly.' 'I learnt how to deliver bad news with a positive spin.' 'It is all great and adaptable for my role.' 'I particularly found the practising of email writing and feedback given was incredibly helpful.' 'I thought this was focussed and incredibly useful. The methods, hints and tips which I learned will enable me to improve the quality of my work.' I would certainly recommend it to others.' 'Extremely informative.' 'It is fantastic and has helped me improve my writing skills.'

I am often amazed at the poor writing skills displayed on so many websites, letters and business emails - poor spelling, poor grammar, presenting such an unprofessional image.

This book manages to pack-in so much information, from how to set out a letter or email, to exercises helping you improve your grammar. And it's great having the free workbook from the UoL website.

I have an office apprentice and want to help her write effective and grammatical letters. I purchased this book to help me formulate my knowledge and thoughts into a teaching schedule. This book is a perfect course for such a purpose, clear, concise and with short exercises to practise the aspects described. It will greatly help me to impart my knowledge in an ordered and understandable way.
