'I thought the book was a must! Although a self- study book, it covered areas that we teach on the EAP pre-sessional course (...) I liked the fact it was so compact and offered a fresh view on most of the areas we have to cover, such as, plagiarism and paraphrasing. It is a condensed, practical and clear guide to academic writing.' Sharon Noseley, UK

'This title goes beyond the actual writing of an essay to include the continued development of the student's ability and in-depth analysis of essay extracts. It guides the students through the questions they should be asking themselves while composing an academic text. (...) A very useful supplementary tool for EAP students and those on pathways programmes or pre-sessional courses. It would also be a popular and essential addition to a self-study centre.' Sharon Chalmers, Director of Studies from Live Language, Glasgow (full review published by BEBC Review Panel http://www.bebc.co.uk/bookreviewwriting)

'Academic Skills: Writing is an extremely useful title, perfectly suited to my second-language English University students. I teach several students doing science subjects at Masters level, who want to know how to present a rigorous written argument in English. Academic formalities are often different in their countries of origin as well as requiring a distinctive rigour. This publication has useful chapters, which enable me to target specific learning-weaknesses my students have. I use it for homework-preparation and discussion work, as well as a reference text for them to plan essays.'
Moira Laidlaw, Professor of educational research at Ningxia Teachers University in Guyuan, P.R. China.
