`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.'
