This book provides students of all levels with essential and easy-to-follow guidance on how to plan, research, and write essays, dissertations, and exams. Taking you step by step through the process, from understanding a title or choosing your own, planning what to say and how to say it, right through to writing a strong conclusion, this book breaks down the process of essay writing and makes it manageable for everyone. It displays information clearly and features charts, diagrams, examples, handy hints, pitfalls to avoid, and separate 'in-depth' chapters specifically for anyone wanting to develop their essay writing skills even further. It also includes advice on setting out footnotes, references, and bibliographies, printing and editing the final draft, presentation, deadlines, time management, and good exam practice. This new edition has been thoroughly revised and updated to explain how digital resources can be used to improve your essay technique e.g. how to research efficiently using the internet, how to use your library's electronic catalogue, and how to use electronic referencing systems. The structure of this new edition has been overhauled to make it even easier to find the information you are looking for, as the two parts have been integrated and now include helpful end of chapter summaries to recap the key points. New to this edition is a list of essay 'FAQs', submitted by real students, with answers directing you straight to the sections you need. Practical, accessible, and written by an author with extensive teaching experience, this book is a cure for essay panic and essential for students wanting to write a successful essay, whether at school or university.
