MunLing Shields places essay writing within the larger university experience for students. In a clear and easy to understand way the author guides the reader through the process of writing successful university essays by looking at essay writing in the context of academic communication, academic culture and different learning styles and approaches. This book:
- Helps students study more independently and learn more meaningfully to write better essays
- Offers invaluable insights into the way tutors see essays
- Explains why essays are set, and how to understand the rationale behind them
- Demonstrates how best to approach answering the question.
This highly accessible book offers practical, in-depth guidance on each of the stages of the essay writing process - planning, drafting and editing - and relates them to the important sub-skills of information-gathering, reading academic texts, how to get the most out of lectures, referencing and citations, and fluency and appropriateness of style and language.

'An excellent guide for students new to writing essays at university'
David Ellicott, Senior Lecturer in Youth Justice and Youth Studies, Nottingham Trent University
A really useful guide to help students master an essential skill, with practical tips and guidance to make student assignments a little more accessible.
Very clear and supportive guidelines on how to improve essay writing. Many students have commented on its accessibility.
This is a really helpful book for students returning to education, preparing for Higher Education. It equips them with all the essential skills of planning, writing and referencing.
good for undergrads
The book covers the skills needed for essay writing and is well illustrated with examples. I felt that it was too long to be of great appeal to students who tend to want a short, sharp introduction and lots of very practical, immediately applicable methods.
This is one of the books which will be recommended for our 2nd and 3rd years UG students in preparation for their dissertations.
