This text is a concise and readable beginning step to take towards becoming a competent and thoughtful assignment writer. The authors take time to explain useful, higher level concepts to readers, so they not only know what to do but also why they are doing it. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it to anyone who wanted to learn how to prep, analyse and write up work for their assessments.

This book would have really helped me as a recent graduate. The informative and clear instructional writing of the book makes it easy to follow and understand and serves as a great additional support to that already given at universities.
