Writing essays, reports, presentations, papers or dissertations makes up a substantial element of most undergraduate and taught postgraduate degree courses. Anything that makes the process easier and more effective can make a big difference to your success as a student.

Taking the reader through the writing process, from understanding the task, through researching, reading and planning, to drafting and composing, reviewing and finalising their copy, the book contains many self-study exercises that will help to develop confidence, technique and clarity of purpose as a writer, whether a first year social science student or a final year scientist or engineer. The book adopts an empowering approach - encouraging the student to find out what they need to know in order to be a successful writer in their discipline. Much more than a set of hints and tips, this book provides an all-encompassing approach to becoming a confident academic writer.

New for this edition:
- a section on managing your physical and mental state
-advice on a wider range of assignment types, including recorded presentations, such as vlogs, and blogs
-introduction to a wider range of strategies that students can employ while composing their work, including material to help students maintain their focus and concentration
- further approaches to developing criticality and creativity
