Learn the craft of writing a high-quality, high-mark university essay with this step-by-step guide.

Suitable for all students – from making the transition to university study that much easier to refining your technique for the final year – this accessible and concise book leads you through the complete essay-writing process in five straightforward steps. The book is packed with best practice tips, common student mistakes (and how to avoid them!), and practical templates that have been designed to help you write your university essays. You will discover new techniques for deconstructing essay questions, like GALA; a complete Harvard Referencing catalogue, showing you how to properly record sources and references; and a generic essay template to help you cover everything necessary for those top marks.

Once you read this book, you will never have to ask the following questions – because you will know the answers:

• What is this question asking me to do?
• How should I structure my essay?
• What goes in an Introduction?
• How do I write a meaningful paragraph?
• How do I cite a source properly?
• What is ‘background information’?
• How do I evaluate someone’s work?
• What goes in a Conclusion?
• How do I create a reference list?
• What do I do with feedback?
