A reference for good English academic writing It s structured like a workbook so read this if you want to learn how to write engaging scientific articles. This is not discipline specific, but it is contains some great information However, most of the examples of writing are quite simplistic and obviously geared towards demonstrating a particular writing exercise It s difficult to translate this simple example to challenging academic articles in specific fields. The 3 5 rating is due to its lack of relevance to my field of study Whilst the text itself was appropriate, many questions which accompanied it to consolidate the reader s grasp of the text were meaningless and superfluous, with poor or ambiguous instructions.Often I would wonder why on earth I was doing such pointless questions Further, there was various errors which were not picked up by the editing staff which gave my class a few laughs Otherwise, it is a decent, standard guide that is inoffensive.I would recommend it for students with a non English speaking background. A very general, but overall helpful, step by step guide to crafting a graduate level research paper This was my first time teaching a graduate level academic writing course and the sections that were most relevant helpful to everyone I had a variety of grad students from various disciplines were the sections that focused less on the paper and on specific academic language e.g common phrases found in methods sections. This book is a lifesaver Really great and informative read for those that need help with term papers Very nice activities Solidly written with the purpose to improve your English As I used the book as a teaching tool.
