Summary

Grappling with grammar? Struggling with punctuation? Whether you're writing an essay or assignment, report or dissertation, this useful guide shows you how to improve the quality of your work at university – fast – by identifying and using the correct use of English grammar and punctuation in your academic writing. Using tried and tested advice from student workshops, Alex Osmond shares practical examples that illustrate common mistakes, and shows you how to avoid them. You’ll also discover guidance on: • Writing structure – the what and how of crafting sentences and paragraphs • Conciseness – how to express your point succinctly and clearly, showing you understand the topic • Effective proofreading – the importance of the final ‘tidy up’, so your work is ready to hand in • Referencing – common systems, and how to reference consistently (and avoid plagiarism). This new edition also includes separate chapters on critical thinking and referencing, exploring each topic in more detail; learning outcomes in every chapter, so you can identify what new skills you’ll take away; materials from the book available online, so you can download and use for study in your own time.
