    Worked through this book over winter break with a PhD friend of mine at another university The first few units were mostly review of familiar concepts in academic writing for myself as a native English speaker but towards the middle and the end there were plenty of tiny bits of knowledge that I’d never thought of before Also speaking with my friend about the slight differences we had in our answers on some tasks really made the discussion robust While yes this book was helpful in terms of self reflection at times it is especially helpful to work through in a group or with others Probably it would have been even beneficial if that group consisted of people from than one discipline though it was good to have someone else in the same field to see if you agreed for your field Overall I recommend it to new graduate students or those who want to polish up some of their own writing

    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 eg common phrases found in methods sections

    This book is a lifesaver Really great and informative read for those that need help with term papers

    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

    I think this is a pretty great book to prepare myself for writing a graduate level paper There were some undergrad level information mistakes or irrelevant information for my field tho

    The 35 rating is due to its lack of relevance to my field of study Whilst the text itself was appropriate many uestions which accompanied it to consolidate the reader's grasp of the text were meaningless and superfluous with poor or ambiguous instructionsOften I would wonder why on earth I was doing such pointless uestions 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 inoffensiveI would recommend it for students with a non English speaking background

    This is not discipline specific but it is contains some great information However most of the examples of writing are uite 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
