Grappling with grammar? Struggling with punctuation? Whether you're writing an essay or assignment, report or dissertation, this useful guide shows you how to improve the quality of your work at university - fast - by identifying and using the correct use of English grammar and punctuation in your academic writing.

Using tried and tested advice from student workshops, Alex Osmond shares practical examples that illustrate common mistakes, and shows you how to avoid them. You'll also discover guidance on:

  • Writing structure - the what and how of crafting sentences and paragraphs
  • Conciseness - how to express your point succinctly and clearly, showing you understand the topic
  • Effective proofreading - the importance of the final 'tidy up', so your work is ready to hand in
  • Referencing - common systems, and how to reference consistently (and avoid plagiarism).

This new edition also includes separate chapters on critical thinking and referencing, exploring each topic in more detail, and learning outcomes in every chapter, so you can identify what new skills you'll take away.

The Student Success series are essential guides for students of all levels. From how to think critically and write great essays to planning your dream career, the Student Success series helps you study smarter and get the best from your time at university.

-- Dr Kate Daniels
-- Ruth Hewston
There are lots of books on correct usage of English, but where this book distinguishes itself from the rest is its focus on academic writing. As well as perhaps obvious (to teachers) advice to avoid emotive language in essays, the book contains information on sentence structure and other aspects of grammar. What is especially good is that the examples are all taken from academic writing in different subject areas. In addition, the book is easy to read because it has a simple two-colour format with clear headings. -- Terry Freedman
