Fills a much needed gap between reading for writing, and the actual process of writing. Useful exercises on paraphrasing/quoting/summarizing, and introducing and commenting on your reading. The initial example of what 'good academic writing' which makes use of sources looks like was useful in raising student awareness of key features, and also providing them with a goal – i.e. what they should be working towards themselves.' - Emma Bentley, EAP Tutor, English Language Centre, King's College London, UK
"Combines a clear sightedness about the academic process, (from deciding what to read to polishing a final draft), with detailed advice and activities in specific areas of language, usage and grammar" - Kate Williams, Oxford Brookes University, UK
- Provides users with key vocabulary and phrases to use when integrating their reading into their essays, all of which are taken from real academic writing
- Presents common lexical and grammatical errors made by students, and gives readers practice in identifying them for themselves
